By default, Windows 10 automatically downloads and installs the device driver software. But if you feel that a Driver is not working or Windows 10 does not automatically update Driver to the latest version, you can update Driver manually with just a few mouse clicks.
Device Manager in Windows 10 allows you to update the device driver software with ease manually. It checks if a newer version of Driver is available for a selected device and then downloads and installs it, if available.
If you don’t stop Windows 10 from automatically updating drivers, you probably have the latest Driver software version. But sometimes, the latest version of Driver is not installed automatically. Some Drivers take a long time to appear on Windows Update.
