For graphics drivers, you can use the control panel included with your graphics drivers to check for updates them.
NVIDIA, AMD, and even Intel provide control panels that automatically check for and download the latest graphics driver updates for you.
Your system will work faster and the applications themselves respond more quickly and flawlessly.
Even with access to a database of over one million updates, our servers make a quick scan of your system and automatically find the software in need of an upgrade.
In other cases, you might need to get the latest version of a hardware driver if the current one is causing problems with your computer. This means downloading drivers from the hardware manufacturer’s individual websites, or letting Microsoft’s Windows Update do the work for you.
If you do want to update your drivers, skip the driver-updating utilities. Assuming you’re using Windows 10, Windows Update automatically downloads and install the latest drivers for you.
Windows 10 won’t be automatically updating graphics drivers every time NVIDIA or AMD releases a new version.
Often, you won’t need to bother with updating drivers, but you may sometimes need to get the latest version—especially if something isn’t working right.
