If a driver or update causes problems, you can uninstall it and block Windows from downloading it again.
Microsoft doesn’t provide a way to block updates from within Windows 10, but it does provide a downloadable tool to do this.
Though you might think only updates from Microsoft come through this, they actually work with a huge host of third-party companies in order to distribute drivers through it too.
It’s Microsoft’s aim that their customers shouldn’t have to hunt around for the drivers they need, with Windows Update being the catch-all solution to that problem.
This effectively allows you to “hide” updates like you could on Windows 7.
Not sure which device driver or update Windows just installed that might be causing you problems?
They’re often good enough, but sometimes you’ll want the complete package or a driver Windows can’t provide.Windows uses software called a driver to communicate with the hardware or devices that your system uses.Simply put, the driver translates the message so that the operating system will understand how to handle what it’s receiving.Hardware drivers are the software that allow your operating system to communicate with your hardware.Windows includes built-in drivers and automatically downloads new ones to make setup easier, but device manufacturers also provide their own driver packages.
