How to disable a device in Device Manager on multiple computers

Hi!

I need to disable a device in Device Manager in over 300 laptops, but I know there has to be better way to disable it rather than going to all of them and physically touching it.
Can this be done in Endpoint Manager? Maybe a PowerShell script?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    @Jasper , Based as I know, there's no built option to disable hardware device in device manager in Intune. But you can check if there's any PowerShell Script to do this.

    After researching, I find a link describe this. You can write the PowerShell script refer to the following link:
    https://aidenwebb.com/posts/how-to-enable/disable-hardware-devices-using-windows-powershell/
    Note: Non-Microsoft link, just for the reference.

    After the PowerShell script is working on one device, then we can consider deploying it in a batch via Intune script

    Hope it can help.
