    Are you downloading the latest driver direct from Intel. They have drivers released for Win10 whereas Lenovo are listing up to Win8.1

    Click here to select your driver from Intel (make sure you choose correctly for Win10 x86 or x64)
    OK, so I go to the link above and select drivers for Win 10 64 bit, install and reboot and the old drivers are still showing.
    Driver from link above is version 18.1.1525.1445 dated 8-28 (I am sure that is an auto generated date) and the version showing on my computer AFTER installing the drivers is 15.16.0.2 dated 1-6-15. I hate this laptop....

    The way to properly remove the device and its drivers from the OS, is to do it from Device Manager and choose the selection to remove the device, when you choose to uninstall drivers. I do not know why it took 7 posts on something so simple.
    Read my posts. I am trying to uninstall the device as well as all of the drivers associated with it. The option to remove all of the device drivers is not an option as it was in window 7.

    Different versions of drivers are stored in: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository. This is where Windows search for drivers to install.
    If you wish, download: DriverStore Explorer. Right click and run as Admin. Click on Enumerate and go thru the list to find the driver that you want to remove from Windows, check mark to select the driver and check mark on Force deletion then click on Delete Package
