    I completely understand your point, but I'm still not convinced to believe your explanation,
    In the general sense of the post that started this, I still say that has far less an effect than the tutorial I linked to.

    With that we'll agree to disagree (somewhat - as the nomenclature is somewhat "grainy") agreeably

    Disagreement is fine, that's what forums are for, to seek for solution

    But, I don't think @Brink is wrong with his tutorial that you linked, because in fact there are 3 tutorials instead of one which dalchina posted in his post #3

    Those 3 tutorials may be out of sync and all this is surely confusing, and I'm even not 100% sure what's true and what's false here.

    @zebal

    FYI - Enable or Disable Driver Updates in Windows Update in Windows 10

    Seem we're both right (I was just caught up in the verbiage)

    Okay, so just enable the GPO setting and I'll be good?

    Yes.

    As discussed here - GPO is more effective; however, if you have "Home", you'll need to use the procedures zebal listed, which is this tutorial - Turn On or Off Device Driver Automatic Installation in Windows 10

    No, I don't do home; I'm a pro.
    But I just wanted to make sure that this won't kill my computer.

    Then, yeah, you want to use the Group Policy Option

    Be aware you "may" get "Some settings are managed by your organization" when you use GPO....

    Rock on! That's what I did. I just don't want to miss out on any updates. But since I use my MB site, I guess I'll be good. Microsoft doesn't update keyboard or mouse drivers, right?

    I'm not aware of them doing so since those are pretty basic drivers, but....

    Anyway, my experience is that you should be good that "vendor" specific drivers won't get updated with that setting, but with the constant changes to the OS who knows what the future holds.

    Good luck.

    I agree with sygnus.

    MS deliberately uses artificial dates for its drivers [generally 2006 & 2009 dates] so that OEM drivers, that have real publication dates, are always newer and will not get overwritten - Windows update only updates drivers if they are older than its own ones.
    However, since OEMs also send drivers to MS for inclusion in Windows update, if the OEM has sent a later one than yours to MS then it will use it to update your one unless you have blocked driver updates completely.
