Keeping our operating system's drivers up to date is essential to guarantee the correct understanding between the latter and its different peripherals. Doing so manually can be a true chaos and that's why it's better to download some kind of update assistant as is the case with SlimDrivers.
Scan all your PC's drivers and update them automatically
It's a tool for Windows that has been around since XP and that allows you to scan the system to detect all your drivers and find out whether they're updated or out of date. How it works is very simple. Once started, it will scan all our hardware and search for updates and system patches that we may have installed. Then it will look for new versions, updates, and patches on the Internet.
Thus, after a few moments, we'll be provided with a huge list on which SlimDrivers will show us options to download and install each one of those files considered necessary. In parallel, it also includes a backup tool to copy all the drivers we've already installed or create a restore point before installing any new programs or patches.
Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 10... it can update the drivers for any version.
The program resorts to an online database with thousands of drivers for all sorts of devices and manufacturers. Any driver you need can be found by this program: monitors, sound cards, printers, modems and routers, mice and keyboards, storage devices, motherboard controllers.
These are the main features of this assistant:
- Scan all the drivers on your system.
- Compare the results with the online driver database.
- Function to manually uninstall controllers.
- Possibility to create backups, restore drivers, and schedule system scans.
This tool is a great way of keeping the system always up to date without putting in too much effort.
