Drivers are an essential part of any computer system that helps the operating system communicate with the hardware components. Sometimes, updated drivers may cause issues or incompatibilities with the system, and in such cases, rolling back the driver to the previous version can be a useful solution.
How to Roll Back Any Driver to Fix Issues on Windows 11 or 10?
Here’s how you can roll back any driver on Windows 11 or 10:-
Step 1. Press the Windows key + X key and select “Device Manager” from the menu.
Step 2. In the Device Manager window, locate the device whose driver you want to roll back and double-click on it.
Step 3. In the Properties window of the device, click on the “Driver” tab.
Step 4. Click on the “Roll Back Driver” button.
Step 5. In the “Why are you rolling back?” window, select the appropriate reason for rolling back the driver and click “Yes” to confirm.
Step 6. Wait for the system to roll back the driver to the previous version.
Step 7. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
Note: If the “Roll Back Driver” button is greyed out, it means that there are no previous versions of the driver installed on your system, or the current driver was installed more than ten days ago, and the rollback option is no longer available.
Rolling back drivers can help resolve issues related to hardware compatibility or conflicts with other drivers. However, it’s important to note that rolling back a driver may not always be the best solution, and in some cases, updating the driver may be necessary to fix the issue.
