What is a Driver

A device driver is a small piece of Software that tells the Operating System and other software how to communicate with a piece of Hardware.


For example, printer drivers tell the operating system, and by extension whatever program you have the thing you want to print open in, exactly how to print information on the page

How to Manage Device Drivers

The drivers for each piece of hardware in your Windows computer are centrally managed from Device Manager, available in all versions of Microsoft Windows.


Most of the time, drivers install automatically and never need more attention, aside from the occasional updating to fix bugs or add a cool new feature. This is true for some drivers in Windows that are downloaded via Windows Update.


When a manufacturer releases a driver update, it’s your responsibility to install it. Some companies provide programs that will check for and install any releveant updates, but most don’t make it that easy.

Why do I need to update the drivers?

It is very important to update all the Drivers.


For example an update can correct system flaws (also called Exploit) or improve its operation to get better performance, and so on. An update can also resolve some Windows problems such as the malfunction of the Graphics Card
