More than 7,000 people believe that Windows 10 should never, ever update drivers (especially graphics drivers) without a user’s permission.
Normally, a driver update happens automatically: Windows scans your system, and if it detects a new, certified driver, it downloads and installs it, no questions asked. We generally consider this to be a good thing, as updated drivers typically provide upgraded performance.
Some gamers, though, feel differently. “Certain drivers work best for certain hardware, device configurations, device BIOS configurations, and certain games,” accordng to user Toni F. “When playing an online fast-paced action game, the user wants the best experience possible. No glitches, no lags etc…There is NO WAY one driver version can solve all problems for every configuration there is. The LATEST is most often NOT THE GREATEST!”
Comments on the Feedback Hub suggest that most users actually wouldn’t mind having driver updates turned on by default; but they at least want a toggle to disable the feature (or possibly revert to an older driver) if they so choose. Unfortunately, there’s been nothing in the Insider previews to indicate this is coming.
