Will Windows 10 Automatically Update Drivers?

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 by | Filed Under: Hardware & Peripherals, Windows 10

A reader wants to know if Windows 10 will automatically update drivers for devices. Windows 10 will automatically download and install driver updates for items like printers, video cards, and monitors using the regular Windows update.

If you think you’re missing a driver, try this:  Type Device Manager into the search box and click on the result.


Then select a category and tap the arrow next to it to expand.


Pick the device you want to search for drivers for. Right-click (or press and hold if using a touchscreen device) then select Update Driver Software from the drop-down menu.


Choose how you  want your PC to look for the software.


It will then search online for updates and let you know if there are any to be installed.

    I found for those who used the free Windows 10 upgrade for Windows 7 and 8/8.1 computers had issues getting their HP printers to work.
    Solution, go the printer’s web site and search support/driver updates to find the one that makes HP printers usable again. Download and install it if your HP printer isn’t working.
