Updating windows device drivers new celebrity dating show on fox
For example, generic mouse drivers will allow you to use your mouse, but may not allow you to adjust its DPI settings or customize buttons in as fine-grained a manner as Logitech's software.(Microsoft's generic drivers tend to be very reliable, though, so unless you need those extra features, it's not bad to keep what Microsoft gets you.)If you want the latest version not yet in Windows Update, or you want those extra features that driver isn't offering, you can grab it from the manufacturer.Open your system tray in the right-hand corner of Windows' taskbar, right-click on the icon for the software in question, and open its main settings window.For example, to update the drivers for my AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics card, I would right-click on the Radeon Settings icon and choose Open Radeon Settings.If you have any questions or comments, please post them below or join the discussion in the groovy Post community forum.
Sometimes Windows will only distribute a "generic" version from Microsoft that eschews extra features.
For example, a driver may be a few months outdated in comparison to the latest driver available on your device manufacturer’s website.
But then other times the manufacturer will release the driver to Windows Update before they even post it on their site, so you’ll get an ultra-recent driver by using Windows automatic update instead. Either way, the Windows 7 groovy automatic driver installation process is pretty cool, so I hope it works well for you.
If you're using Windows 10, it will say Check for Updates.
You can also go the long way by opening the Settings Update & Security. Once at the Windows Update screen, click the big Check for Updates button.
To download a driver directly from the manufacturer, navigate to the product page for the device in question.
