Windows 10 preview offers more extensive control over drivers in Device Manager

Microsoft is going to give Windows 10 users more control over drivers. In Device Manager, therefore, not only can the devices be managed, but the drivers will also be easier to view and update.

Microsoft is making that known as part of the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21382, which can now be found in the Dev channel. The company says you can now look in Device Manager for ‘devices by drivers’, ‘drivers by type’ and ‘drivers by devices’. In addition, there is an ‘add drivers’ button that instantly installs new drivers ‘on all applicable devices’.

Microsoft also makes it possible for users with a display with HDR to indicate that certain apps should still display their colors based on an ICC color profile. This should allow apps like Adobe Photoshop to display colors on HDR-enabled displays as intended by the app.

The next major update to Windows 10, the May 2021 Update or 21H1, is coming soon. Microsoft has not set a definitive date for it yet, but given its name and the fact that it Bug Bash Program before this version is nearing its end, it looks like the release is coming soon. However, since these new features have just appeared in Insider circles, it is more likely that these features will appear in the next version, 21H2.
