Roll Back Driver

If a driver has been updated, Windows still keeps the previous version of the driver just in case. This will be made available in case you decide to roll back to it at a later time.

You may need to go back to the previous version of the driver if you find that the newer one is having issues, or is just not compatible with your setup.

That said, Windows only keeps the last installed version of the driver and discards the rest. You can roll back to the latest version using these steps:

  1. Press Windows Key + R keys simultaneously to open the Run Command box.

  2. Type in “devmgmt.msc” and press Enter to open the Device Management console.

    Open the Device Manager
    Open the Device Manager
  3. Expand the branch of the hardware whose driver you want to roll back.

    Click to expand hardware branch
    Click to expand the hardware branch
  4. Right-click on the device and then click Properties from the context menu.

    properties 4
    Open device properties
  5. Switch to the Driver tab and click Roll Back Driver.

    roll back driver
    Roll back the driver version
  6. From the pop-up window, select the reason for rolling back and then click Yes.

    Justify the rollback

The window will now close. Give your system a few seconds for the driver to successfully rollback.

Note that you will not be prompted whether the driver has rolled back or not. You can confirm this by checking that the “Roll Back Driver” button has been greyed out in the device’s Properties window. If it has, it means that the rollback was successful.

    I’ve installed a new Intel driver, 22.240.0, on my PCs. Then I got the problem that both 2 PCs cannot connect to my WiFi router. The adapters are AC 9260 and AC 9560. The router is running 802.11AX(WiFi 6) and WPA3 and 5GHz band enabled. It is not a “WPA2/WPA3” mix.
    The driver, 21.80.2.3, from MS, works fine. Do you know how to report this to Intel? Their user forum is useless because nothing is solved.
