Home » News » You can now include driver updates when updating Windows 10

One of the main causes of various Windows 10 problems ever since the operating system was released are bad drivers. Microsoft is aware of the fact that incompatibility between drivers and the system is a major problem, and wants to make things at least slightly better.

Starting from build 15002 for Windows 10 Preview, users can now choose whether they want to receive driver updates via Windows Update. Many device manufacturers have a partnership with Microsoft, which allows them to release driver updates through Windows Update, as regular updates for Windows 10.

Up until now, users were forced to install new driver updates via Windows Update, but the latest Preview build changed it. Having the latest drivers installed on your computer is actually a good thing in most of the cases, and is always recommended. However, some drivers can cause problems, and that’s where this option comes in.

So, if you notice that a certain driver is a cause of a certain Windows 10 problem, you can simply roll back the driver, and prevent Windows from installing it again with other updates. This option is available on Professional, Education, and Enterprise editions of Windows, so Home users can’t use the benefit of this feature.

For now, the ability to choose which drivers to install is just available to Windows Insiders running build 15002 or higher. As expected, Microsoft will roll out the feature to everyone else with the Creators Update this spring.
