Tip of the Day: Temporarily Blocking a Driver Update from Reinstalling in Windows 10

Today’s Tip…

In Windows 10, your device is always kept up-to-date to have the latest features and fixes. Drivers are installed automatically so that you don't have to select which updates are needed. In rare cases, a specific driver might temporarily cause issues that affect your device. In this situation, you can prevent the problematic driver from reinstalling automatically the next time Windows Updates are installed.

Applicable to both Windows 10 v1511 and v1607
