Repeat of the title..is there software where I can check all my drivers instead of the time consuming challenge of going to device manager and checking each one manually?

I'm trying to save some time.

Don't bother? Windows should take care of it for you.

Whoever made your computer probably has a utility, too.

What he said. Your computer doesn't need that kind of maintenance.

If you have a Dell, you can download their updater software. It'll scan your system and show you what drivers need updating. Most other makers should have something similar.

Windows should be able to manage your drivers, but quite often it may miss one or two. There's plenty of independent PC tune-up utility programs out there that can not only give your PC a much needed boost in terms of clearing down cache, bad registries etc, but some also keep tabs on your drivers.

Some of them are free but limited; while others do cost but don't always do a great job. You can do a Google search to find the best reviewed ones, but again there's no consistency.

Personally I have used "Glary Utilities Pro", "AVG PC TuneUp" and "Systweak Advanced System Optimizer". They're all much of a muchness, and do cost. That said, the latter of the three does seem to detect, repair/update drivers left behind by Windows much better than the other two.

Unless you're having serious issues with your machine, just let Windows do all the work
