Driver update tools do exactly what you might be thinking. They help update some or all of the device drivers installed in Windows for your computer hardware.
This free driver update program makes it easy for your drivers to stay up to date. Use one and you won't have to deal with Device Manager as much, nor will you need to find the right driver from your own hardware manufacturer.
You do not need to use free driver update software to update drivers, but if you do use one, please do not pay for it. These programs are for your convenience only. For instructions on manually updating hardware drivers, see How to Update Drivers in Windows.
1 Driver Booster:
Driver Booster Pro Key is the best free driver update program. It is compatible with all versions of Windows and makes it easy to update drivers. It runs automatically to search for outdated drivers. When new updates appear, they are downloaded from the driver booster program, so you can avoid manually searching for them on each manufacturer's website. Before installing the driver, you can see how the new version of the driver compares with the existing driver, which is helpful. Driver hardening creates a restore point before installing the driver if something goes wrong during installation. There is an option in the settings to install drivers in the background, which hides the installation wizards and other pop-up messages. This is useful so that you don't have to click through many windows during the installation of new drivers. Driver Booster works on Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP.
2 DriverPack Solution:
The driverpack solution has a user interface that is easier to use than the others on this list. There are only a few buttons and no tangled screens or options. This program supports bulk downloads and automated installations so you don't have to click through any installation wizard. When you first open the driverpack solution, you can automatically download and install all drivers in normal mode. Or you can enter "Expert Mode" to select the one you want to update yourself. The driverpack solution also includes basic system information, as well as a software downloader that can install some recommended programs on your computer. The driverpack solution is compatible with Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP. 3 Snappy Driver Installer: Snape Driver Installer is another free driver update tool that looks a bit like a driver pack solution. Download multiple drivers for many different devices at once. Once downloaded, the program gives you instant access to install updates, with or without an Internet connection. Snapi Driver Installer is easy to use and requires no installation. Use an external hard drive to transport and install the downloaded drivers on another computer. Snapper Driver Installer doesn't run ads, doesn't limit download speeds, and you can install as many drivers as you need without limitation. The program works with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. 4 DriverMax: Driver Max is a free Windows program that updates older drivers. However, it is limited in some areas. In addition to updating old drivers, Driver Max can back up some or all of the currently installed drivers, restore backed up drivers, roll back drivers, and identify unknown hardware. ۔ Driver Max discovered older drivers than any other program on this list. We checked the version numbers with the currently installed drivers and they all showed the correct updates. Driver Max searches for drivers for Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP. 5 DriverHub: Driver Hub Driver Updater is easy to use because it downloads and installs drivers for you and is dedicated to restoring an entire section of the program in case something goes wrong. The program itself has a clean interface with only a few menu buttons. The settings have some options to change the download folder and disable the program update check. You can keep things simple and install whatever Driver Hub suggests, or you can choose which drivers to use for the version, version number, and replacement drivers (i.e. a new driver but not the current version). Can install The Useful Programs section of the Driver Center is not related to drivers, but does include some useful Windows utility links, such as Disk Management, Task Manager, Power Supply Settings, Display Settings, and more. Driver Hub works on Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7.
