Software – Device Drivers

When installing a device to use in or with your computer, you wont normally get prompted to install drivers. This is because most peripherals are ‘Plug-in and Play’. This means they do it automatically in one of the background processes your computer undertakes.

As seen with this small slide show, it did everything automatically and all i had to do was choose what to do with it.

This applies to almost all devices and accessories for your modern day computer. However it wasn’t always like this, and at one point, you had to use a disk or the internet to get every single driver for whatever you plugged into your computer.
