According to foreign media sources, a new feature has appeared in the device manager of the preview version of Microsoft Windows 10 Build 21343, which can be used to manually install drivers for new hardware at a faster speed.
At present, Windows 10 will automatically install drivers for common computer hardware such as graphics cards, sound cards, network cards, etc., which can be implemented in the system update interface, but the problem is that the drivers provided by Microsoft are generally old versions instead of the latest drivers. If you want to use the new functions of some hardware, you need to download a new version of the driver from the Internet and then update the driver through the device manager driver management, but the trouble is that the names of these drivers or new devices will be very confusing and not It is difficult to find the desired “it” if it can be installed successfully.
For this reason, two new buttons have been added to the toolbar of the new version of Device Manager. After one of them is clicked, an option to install the driver will pop up. The user can directly select the file directory, and the software can automatically install the corresponding driver. It should be noted that this function does not apply to computer hardware with drivers installed. It is still necessary to manually select the hardware and update it separately. However, the new version of the device manager provides different views for the driver files: it can sort by the driver *.ini file name, sort by device type, and list the device and ini files separately. Firstly, it helps users to sort by groups to make it easy to find, Installation and management.
The new Device Manager is expected to be officially launched with the Windows 10 21H2 Sun Valley update this fall, so stay tuned.
