When you install a new device or insert a USB device, Windows 7 usually automatically installs the drivers for that device. If Windows cannot find the drivers, it pops up a dialog box asking you whether you want to search the driver for this device online. You can enable Windows 7 to continually look for newer drivers online by using Windows Update. These driver checks and updates happen without you even knowing about them. But in Windows 7 these settings can be changed. This is how :
- Press the key combination Windows Key + R to open the Run dialog.
- Type systempropertiescomputername.exe in the Run dialog and press Enter to open the System Properties dialog. Select the Hardware tab.
- Select Yes, do this automatically and click on the button labeled Save Changes.
