How to check the drivers on a computer

Drivers list on Windows

To check the drivers on any computer is fairly easy.

Go to the start button on the bottom left hand side of the screen. Once this pulls up you can right click Computer, go down to properties, and click.

Once the next screen comes up, the top of the list on the left hand side will say Device Manager – click on that.

Another list will pop up, and any drivers with the exclamation point beside it are missing. You can either right click that line, and click on update driver, or you can go to the manufactures website to directly download the driver.

For Windows 8 and 10, you will click on the windows icon on the bottom left hand side of your screen. You will right click the This PC app and then follow the same instructions. The This PC app is the same as the Computer file on the Windows 7 platform.
