    Drivers after Install


    I just did a clean install of 10. This PC had 7 and was updated to the free 10 some time ago. Due to issues I had to do a clean install. My question is should I go to the manufactures web site and install the 10 drivers? I looked in device manager and do not see any issues. Not sure what is best action on this.

    If everything is working properly and there are no missing devices in Device Mamager, I would leave well enough alone. That what I do. If it's not broke, don't fix it.

    Au contraire: if everything is working, pat yourself on the back, then make a backup of those drivers on a USB stick, so you can find them and reinstall them should you need them sometime soon. Check out this TenForums tutorial: Drivers - Backup and Restore in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums.
