Knowing the details of our operating system is important to be able to access all the services and configurations that are necessary for us at all times. That is why below we will see how to see the folder where Windows 10 saves the drivers..

 

 

Drivers in Windows 10 play a fundamental role in the behavior and performance of the hardware devices installed in the computer . This covers keyboards, mice, network drivers, audio and video, printers and much more, so it is super important that the drivers in Windows 10 are periodically updated for compatibility and performance issues.

 

Normally we install the drivers but we may want to know exactly where Windows 10 saves them. In this case, the Windows 10 system stores all the integrated device drivers in a system folder, which is protected, called DriverStore in System32. This is key for backup and support tasks..

 

Let's see how to access it and its structure.
