DriverStore Explorer Description
DriverStore Explorer is a lightweight, unpretentious yet highly useful piece of software that provides you with a straightforward way of dealing with Microsoft’s Driver Store.
Even though it helps you add and install driver packages (staging), chances are you will find this little app especially useful when it comes to cleaning older driver versions, thus recovering valuable volume space.
Make sure that .NET Framework 4.0 is present and run it as admin, that’s all
Getting started with DriverStore Explorer is as simple as you can imagine since the app doesn’t even require installation. Be that as it may, you will still need to make sure that .NET Framework 4.0 or later is present on your computer’s system before running the app.
While we’re on the subject, it’s also worth pointing out that running this utility without administrative privileges might result in a limited user experience, with various features being disabled.
Novice-accessible driver manager
Start the application, and it automatically provides you with a comprehensive list of all the driver packages staged in the current driver store. It’s worth mentioning that this list can be easily exported as CSV.
As mentioned before, the app’s operation list is not exactly complex, so you should have absolutely no problem working with it. You can add and install a driver package to the store, delete a package, and even force delete it if that’s deemed necessary. The app is also capable of deleting multiple driver packages at once.
The simplest way of dealing with Microsoft’s Driver Store
Taking everything into account, DriverStore Explorer offers you a quick and efficient way of dealing with Driver Store driver packages, cleaning older version drivers and avoiding potentially unwanted drivers from re-installing or auto-installing on your computer’s system.
