Why Updating Drivers Is Important
Usually the only reason we look to install or update game controller drivers is because something is malfunctioning. This is not the only reason you should keep your drivers up to date however. Microsoft is constantly tuning and improving performance of their game controllers and the only way to make use of this is by having the latest drivers. Going online and checking for new drivers all the time can be frustrating and is not an effective use of your time, and a simple tool like the driver installer above can keep all of your hardware running on the optimal drivers with top performance.
Sometimes when new hardware is installed, although it works correctly, other hardware which interacts with it may not be, because the other hardware actually needs its own drivers updated. This kind of co-dependency is another common problem and a reason why it's a great idea to have a tool that is constantly monitoring the state of all of your drivers and updating appropriately so you can upgrade and add or remove components in your computer while continuing to run without a hitch.
When your game controller is relatively new, it may be possible to download individual drivers directly from Microsoft without incurring additional charges. If you are having problems locating the correct drivers for your game controller, or are unsure of the exact model, we suggest you run a system scan first. It's very important you know the exact model of your Microsoft game controller you would like to update to ensure that it will function properly and to prevent possible damage to your system. Download an installer that will automatically scan and identify your Microsoft game controller to make sure you are installing the correct update and will also locate and download any additional driver and bios updates your pc may need.
