Windows drivers are lines of codes that help your OS send and receive instructions from your hardware. You can think of them as the bridge between your computer’s physical form and digital brain.
We’d suggest always downloading new drivers and patches as soon as they’re available. This is how developers fix security flaws and other vulnerabilities that could leave your machine accessible to bad actors. Unfortunately, there are times when these drivers seemingly cause more problems than they fix. When discovered, developers try to patch them as soon as possible. The only way to access these fixes is by updating your driver, again.
