Updating your driver

Manufacturers also submit drivers to Microsoft for testing and signing, and you can get many drivers from Microsoft through Windows Update.

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.
