Windows 10, Microsoft’s latest offering, has proven to be popular, with hundreds of millions of copies already having been downloaded since its launch on 29 July 2015. Part of this popularity can be attributed to the fact that the Operation System could initially be downloaded for free. Another reason why Windows 10 has proven to be popular is the fact that it is easy to use and restores the traditions Start Menu, which had initially been discarded in its predecessor, Windows 8.
Update All Your Drivers
Before dwelling on how you can update your wireless drivers in Windows 10, we should point out that it is important to keep all the drivers that are on your computer up to date to avoid problems with your hardware.
What Are Device Drivers
Drivers are pieces of computer programs that have been designed for the sole purpose of facilitating communication between hardware components and the Operation System. Without them, Windows would, as an example, not be able to distinguish between a mouse, a printer and a Wireless Router.

Updating Wireless Drivers on Windows 10
The best way through which you can update your computer’s wireless drivers in Windows 10 is by using DriverAssist, which automatically does the job on your behalf. However, should you need to do it yourself, you can easily make the updates by following these steps;
Open Device Manager
The first thing that you need to do is open Device Manager. There are several ways of doing so, including by opening the Search menu on the bottom left corner of your screen. Type in Device Manager, and click on the option when it appears in the results.
You can also open Device Manager by right clicking on the “This PC” icon on your desktop, clicking on Properties, and clicking on Device Manager in the System menu that appears.
Once you are in Device Manager, all that you need to do to update your Wireless Drivers is click to expand the Network Adapter icon. Your wireless adapter will appear in the list. Right click on it and click Update Driver Software to update the drivers. Windows will ask you whether you wish to search for the drivers automatically, over the internet, or by browsing on your computer. Choose the first option, and the system will go online to look for updates for your wireless drivers.
Though simple enough, there is really no need for you to have to remember all the above steps to update your drivers. We recommend that you use SafeBytes DriverAssist to have all the hard work automatically taken care of on your behalf.
