Keeping your drivers up-to-date is essential for maintaining a healthy computer. Outdated drivers can cause errors and slow down your computer, so it’s important to update them regularly.

How to Update Windows Drivers?
- The first step in updating your Windows driver is to open the Device Manager. To do this, click on the Start button and type “device manager” into the search box. Then, click on the “Device Manager” item that appears in the results list. This will open a window with a list of all the devices connected to your computer.
- Once you’re in Device Manager, you’ll need to identify which device needs an updated driver. To do this, look for devices with a yellow exclamation point next to them; these are devices that have outdated or corrupted drivers installed and need to be updated. Right-click on the device and select “Update Driver Software”. This will bring up a window where you can choose how you’d like to update the driver—you can either search automatically for an updated version or manually install one from a disk or website.
- If you want Windows to search for an updated version of the driver automatically, select “Search automatically for updated driver software” and then click Next. The system will then search online for any available updates and install them if necessary. If there are no updates available, it will let you know that your device has the most recent driver installed.
- If you’d prefer to manually install an update from a disk or website, select “Browse my computer for driver software” instead of searching online and then click Next. You’ll then be prompted to locate the folder containing the updated driver files—this could be on your hard drive, on a USB drive, or even downloaded from another website—and once you’ve located it simply click Next again and follow any additional prompts until installation is complete.
Updating Windows drivers is essential for keeping your system running smoothly and avoiding problems caused by outdated or corrupted drivers. Thankfully, updating drivers is easy; just open Device Manager and look for devices that have outdated drivers installed (indicated by a yellow exclamation point), right-click on them, and choose whether you’d like Windows to search online automatically or if you’d like to manually install an update from a disk or website instead. Follow these steps carefully and soon enough all of your device drivers will be up-to-date!
