With Windows 10, Microsoft has made it mandatory to keep Windows Update on. If you have a recent computer with components that are not out of date, Windows Update keeps the device drivers up to date, along with other features and quality updates.
The problem with Windows Update is that it may not always come with fully-featured drivers. If you have advanced hardware like graphics cards or audio, the basic drivers will not get the most out of the hardware.
To resolve this problem, you must install the latest device drivers for your hardware and keep it updated with each new release of the driver version. The easiest way to do this is to use a driver update utility.
Driver Easy Pro is a driver update utility that promises to keep drivers updated for all components of your PC without impacting the stability and performance of the system, in fact enhancing them.
Driver Easy Pro automatically detects the hardware installed on our PC, and if a new updated driver is available for any component, it will download and install the driver automatically. This saves a lot of work, like finding the hardware components installed in the system, checking their vendor sites for the latest versions of the drivers, and then checking if you have the latest version installed on your computer.

Using Driver Easy Pro
As its name suggests, using Driver Easy Pro is also quite easy. There is a menu on the left-hand side of the window. You will find the following options in the menu:
- Hardware Info
If you click on the Scan button, the right-hand side of the window will show the Scan Now button. Clicking on the Scan Now button will manually trigger the scanning option. This will do a few tasks automatically, like the following:
- Detect the currently installed hardware
- Check the version number of the installed device driver.
- Check if an updated version of the driver is available.
If an update is available, it will be furnished with a list of updates available, and this will be done in the Update section (from the left-hand menu). You can update the drivers one by one, or just click on the Update All button to download and install the updates automatically.
The Hardware Info section displays overview information about your system components, like CPU, motherboard, memory, and graphics.
The Tools section is interesting as you can backup, restore, uninstall/reinstall the drivers, etc. Here are the exact options:
- Driver Backup
- Driver Restore
- Driver Uninstall
- Offline Scan
It is always recommended to have a backup before you do anything with your system. You can back up the currently installed drivers using the Tools section and restore the backups if anything goes wrong.
I hope this tool will give you some peace of mind and keep your system up to date with optimum-performing device drivers. I would love to hear your views about this freebie, and if you appreciate it in the comments below, I’ll keep sharing more freebies.
