Knowing which Driver versions your running on can be useful when debugging an issue with your system. You can for example find out if you have that buggy driver or even worse have that driver which causes a security vulnerability to your computer. In this article we will show you how to check Driver Version in Windows 11 or Windows 10 without the use of third-party software.
Through Device Manager
- Right-click the Windows start icon and choose Device Manager
- Unfold the category which your driver belongs to, for example a Keyboard (Human Interface Devices) or GraphicCard (Display Adapters)
- Right-click the device and choose Properties
- Click on the Driver tab, you will now be able to see the driver version under Driver Version.
This is the easiest method and always works. For most users we recommend this method as it’s easy and simple to do.
Through PowerShell / Windows Terminal
Another method to get a list of all current versions of all installed drivers in Windows 11 is through the Windows Terminal (or Powershell in Windows 10)
- Press Win+X to open the Windows-X menu.
- Select Windows Terminal (Admin) (for windows 10 users; choose Powershell) option.
- Click on the Yes option.
- Enter this command: Get-WmiObject Win32_PnPSignedDriver| select DeviceName, DriverVersion
- Find the driver version in the DriverVersion column.
