    Update Drivers using 3rd party software?

    I have just installed Driver Agent Plus and it shows 13 out of date drivers. Should I rely on Windows 10 to update necessary drivers or should I use a 3rd party program? If the latter is Driver Agent Plus a good choice.?
    My set-up is as I want it and I am a bit concerned new drivers will cause problems. I know for example that my old printer does not work properly with latest driver but is fine with older version.

    I do not recommend these updater services. If you're happy with the performance of your PC as it is, I would leave it.

    I prefer to periodically go to the manufacturer's website manually to check for updates, then you're sure you're getting the right driver.
