Window 10 updates

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm going to purchase Windows 10 but was concerned that Windows update would automatically install newer drivers for my video card when I may not want the lates driver is it possible to select what updates are installed like you can with Windows 7.

 

. Thanks,Jim

It detects the drivers already in place and uses those for your installed card, in other words your good to use your own drivers, I'm using the latest nvidia drivers for my GTX1060 and windows 10 (creators) isn't changing them to want it thinks is best.

With Windows 10 you can opt to receive just security updates (which you want) and not driver updates. This applies to all drivers, not just those for the graphics card.
