The Windows 10 Driver installation process is evolving

Windows 10’s next major update scheduled for release in 2020 will tweak a bunch of things – this includes  a new way to update and install optional drivers.

In their changelog documentation for Windows 10 Build 19536, Microsoft confirmed that they are working on an easier way to install Windows 10 drivers.

This was announced with Build 19536 and Microsoft says users will be provided with a new section in Windows Update to manage optional updates without third-party software or Device Manager.

You will be able to see all optional updates (including drivers) in Windows Update’s Optional Updates section.

This effectively means you no longer need to use an app or Device Manager to update a specific driver.

According to Microsoft, Windows Update automatically keeps your drivers up to date, but Optional Updates option will give you more control over installation and updates for certain drivers.

“We’re still working on making it easier for you to see all optional updates (including drivers, feature updates, and monthly non-security quality updates) in one place,” the company said.

Windows 10 20H1 (version 2004) is the next feature update for the operating system with new features for everyone including gamers, consumers and businesses.
