How to get Windows 10 to automatically update printer drivers
I’ve ESET NOD32 put in and it tells me that there are alleged to be updates for my printer drivers obtainable on Home windows Replace. However Home windows 10 shouldn’t be downloading these drivers by itself and does not present them in Home windows Replace.
I don’t presently have any deferred updates and I am in any other case up-to-date. I had to enter the Gadget Supervisor and select Replace Driver on a few drivers to have my system obtain the most recent variations from the Home windows Replace server.
The remaining drivers I appear to be lacking are these for printers. One cannot replace these from Gadget Supervisor because the drivers listed there are the entire generic native printer queue kind.
I attempted updating them by the Printer Preferences web page (Gadgets and Printers) and selecting the Home windows Replace supply from the New Driver choice.
This does appear to obtain a bunch of recordsdata from Home windows Replace, however does not clear up the warning about older drivers.
In earlier variations of Home windows I did get extra driver updates immediately by Home windows Replace robotically. Is there a setting I tousled by some means?
One other instance of updates (obtainable from the Home windows Replace Catalog), however not being introduced in by home windows replace have been the Azure Energy pack discovered right here:
Eset contacted me and can do a distant display sharing session to see what is going on on.
Remarks know a few of the solutions beneath, sure home windows replace supplies generic drivers for some units, but in addition supplies drivers that are the identical as those supplied by oems, the Lenovo energy administration drivers for instance are an identical, whether or not I set up them by home windows replace or Lenovo. The identical applies to the wi-fi drivers from Intel or the Webcam driver from Realtek.
And sure, for some, like sure printers, it ships generic drivers. I do not thoughts generic drivers, so long as they’re the most recent generic drivers.
It nonetheless baffles me that some driver updates will not be pushed by home windows replace, however will replace by the system supervisor. Equally it baffles me that sure drivers will not be pushed by home windows replace, neither by checking by the system supervisor.
I am going to replace once more after Eset has had its likelihood to research my system.
