Here’s how changing Windows drivers affects your computer and your devices

The drastic change that Microsoft will make to the drivers of Windows 11 and all the versions that will come out from now on is one of the most dangerous steps of the company.

Microsoft wants to change the way drivers work in Windows 11. This change raises many issues when using devices on computers with Microsoft’s operating system. Until now, drivers are part of the use of a computer and, of course, all devices connected to the computer to ensure its proper functioning.

Third party drivers for printers have their days numbered. Microsoft proposes a new management when connecting this type of peripheral to a computer. What the Redmond company wants to do is to end the reliance on this type of information in Windows 11 so that the printers work, although it is not as easy as first suggested.

2025 as the last date for companies to act. All manufacturers have a deadline set by Microsoft, must adapt the operation of their printers so that they do not depend on drivers. Those from Redmond show that this is possible thanks to the fact that Windows 11 has support for USB and network connection.

There are no new drivers in Windows 11 updates. The key point that Microsoft wants to achieve with these actions is to completely eliminate the obligation to integrate them into Windows 11 updates. Of course, working printers will not lose- an to function because users have all the freedom to install drivers.

Slowly change the operation of the drivers. The timeline established by Microsoft has a gradual approach. September 2023 is the date chosen for the announcement of the end of third-party drivers in Windows 11, while in 2025 the drivers will stop adding updates to the version of Windows released by Microsoft.

Users are free to install any type of driver. No matter how confusing the situation is, anyone with a computer can install the driver they want and, in fact, it’s a change that won’t be affected by Microsoft’s changes. In short, the operation of printers is more than guaranteed and can be independent of Windows updates.
