    How do we get the touchpad driver ID of a laptop...


    How do we get the touchpad driver ID, and other drivers IDs, of a laptop/computer by any tool or kind of script ?

    @SIW2: thanks for the pointer to Unknown Device Identifier. It helped me figure out that a "missing" device in Device Mgr was really just a symptom of having no devices of that type or class (Thunderbolt) hooked up, rather than an outright missing driver. Very helpful, thanks!

    Hi folks

    @budi
    @EdTittel

    An easy way to get driver details of any piece of hardware in your system (particularly useful when you have the unknown hardware symbol against a piece of hardware) --

    simply go into device manager -- select properties against the device and then select events

    you'll see the pc vendor id etc and then via google you should be able to locate what the device actually is and any drivers for it.

    I'm using a VM currently but as an example - I've selected properties against keyboard.

    Good point @jimbo45. There are many ways to get device info from Windows. Yours is a good one, too.
    Thanks for sharing.
