Windows 11/10 has a lot of many important features that can increase your productivity. Including a feature that lets you install drivers for any part of your device like a monitor.

That can be done by using Device Manager. But, it doesn’t help much because Windows 11/10 doesn’t have an up-to-date database about your hardware’s drivers. You can’t install monitor drivers because of it.

Now, you can.

Monitor or display is a part of the important hardware of your Windows 11/10 PC. If you use the up-to-date Windows 11/10 version and build, you may have always been getting driver updates for your hardware.

But unfortunately, Windows 11/10 doesn’t offer that kind of update regularly, and sometimes you have to find the website official of the hardware brand to get the driver, like monitor drivers.

Before jumping into how you can install monitor drivers in Windows 11/10, you should know why it is important to update that kind of driver.

Why It Is Important to Install New Monitor Drivers and What to Expect

Installing monitor drivers is important because the monitor needs to adapt to the operating system you’re using, and it needs to be updated because it may have security risks if you keep it out-of-date. Especially if you set up 3 monitors.

For example, when you first time use Windows 11/10, you may have to install Intel HD Graphic drivers (if you use Intel) to make your Windows 11/10 able to use more screen resolution.

And, you have to know what to expect when you install monitor drivers. For most non-tech-savvy users, installing monitor drivers could mean that it will increase the speed of your monitor or so, which isn’t true.

Updating the monitor driver won’t speed up anything whatsoever because the speed or performance of your computer isn’t relying on your monitor.

But, you can have better graphic, more colors, more effect, and even graphic that doesn’t decrease your laptop’s battery life. Updating or installing monitor drivers is important especially if you’re a gamer. Getting greater graphics and more FPS is amazing to play games.
