How to remove drivers from Windows 10?

In order to start the process of cleaning the system from the drivers, clean the temporary files, as this will make the procedure described below more qualitative and probably remove everything from the system.

Once you have finished clearing the temporary files, hover your mouse over the "My Computer" icon (located on the "Desktop"), right-click on the icon and select "Properties" from the context menu.

Before you should open a window with the name "System", where you will have to go to the "Device Manager" subsection.

Once in the window with the name "Device Manager", you must select the device from the driver which you want to get rid of. Now click on this device with the left mouse button for the name to appear in the blue frame, then click the right mouse button to bring up the "context menu" in which you will have to click on the "Delete" item.

In a new window, you will have to check the "Remove driver programs for this device" checkbox, for the reason that the system automatically clears everything related to this driver (including programs and temporary files). Also note that you will have to wait a bit, as often, the removal of a specific driver takes several minutes.

In order to check if you managed to remove drivers from Windows 10, we suggest to go back to "Device Manager" in order to make sure that the driver does not exist anymore.

Thus, it is possible to remove all available drivers in your system and take it away not so much time, as it may seem at first glance, as some drivers are removed quickly enough.
