Does Winows 10 latest have driver updates?

  john bunyan 17:48 18 Oct 2017

Just installed the new Windows 10 version. Do Windows updates auto check drivers? I rarely look at this aspect but last week had to do a rather involved re installation of Happauge WinTV to get it to work. I am wary of driver update packages.

You may find Windows 10 may use generic drivers for some thing, although this will not cause a problem it is best to check that you do have the correct drivers. If you have a prebuilt computer the manufacturer may use specific driver for there motherboards etc.

Not sure JB. But if you go into Windows Update and click on advanced options.Give me updates for other Microsoft products is ticked.

Now not sure if that would automatically update drivers or not.

I just looked in programmes and features, and found that, along with the 1709 update, most of my programmes were apparently installed on 18/10/2017 so maybe the update does something to ensure they all work! Apple not included, nor adblock plus and a few others that show original dates.
