Hey all, Welcome to Geeksforjobs

One thing we can all agree on is that Windows 10 does not play well with many drivers. Sometimes, errors and other accidents can cause great misery to users. In today’s guide, we are looking at how to perform a driver role in Windows 10.

Typically, Windows 10 does a great job of installing all the necessary drivers, however, there are times when users may experience problems with the installation or simply, experience various bugs. In other words, it is time to learn how to perform the driver role on its own.

How to start the driver roll back process

Before you begin, please ensure that you are signed into an account with administrator privileges to bring back a driver. To be safe, perform a backup before proceeding.

When Windows 10 installs a driver, it usually keeps the previous version around for the purpose of roll back — however, it does not keep a collection of older drivers.

Open Device Manager by hitting “Windows + X” and then choose the “Device Manager” option from the Power Users menu.

In Device Manager, identify the device with the problem, and choose “Properties”.

From there choose the Driver tab, and then hit “Roll Back Driver”

Upon selecting the roll back driver, Windows will prompt with a warning. Click on the applicable response and select “Yes”.

It will take about 5–10 minutes for Windows to automatically restore the previous version of the driver. Keep in mind that some drivers may take longer, like video card drivers for example. After reboot, Windows will run the previous version of that driver.

enough! Now, you know how to roll back drivers for those pesky drivers who don’t like to play well. N tricks for more tips, and back to geeksforjobs to keep yourself updated on the latest tech news.
