Device drivers are vendor created programs that control the working of devices attached to the computer with the operating system. They convert the general input/output operating system instructions to a language that the device can follow and understand.

In Windows 10, there are hundreds of built-in device drivers for printers, disk drives, peripherals and so on. New device drivers can be installed. Similarly, existing device drivers can be updated, rolled back or disabled.
