Drivers are one of the most important software installed on a Windows PC. No matter if it's Windows 10, 8.1, or the old Windows 7!
Improperly configured or missing drivers can cause all sorts of problems!
1.) ... The example of the Windows driver query!
2.) ... Other possibilities of the Windows driver query!
For example, you can use the /v option to create a detailed (verbose) listing and add the csv parameter to the /fo option to generate the output in a format appropriate for Microsoft Office Excel
driverquery /v /fo csv > the_windows_drivers_list.csv
driverquery /v /fo csv > D:\CSV\the_windows_drivers_list.csv
Thus, you can bring a clear listing of the installed Windows drivers in a CSV format that you can check later, using the Driverquery command is really very easy. If you enter this command without parameters, a simple list of installed devices and drivers is created. You can change the output of the command with a variety of options (... see Image-1) and redirect the output of the command to a file as described in the example above, so that you can load the driver overview into an Excel and with the Functions in Microsoft Office Excel allow you to evaluate and filter the data.
