Organize the drivers on your Windows PC and effectively deal with Microsoft's Driver Store by using DriverStore Explorer. Windows automatically installs drivers for every piece of hardware you ever connect to your system. A program you run may require a driver to be added. End result: there are many drivers taking up space on your system.

The Windows OS continues to store all the drivers that are installed over the lifetime of your computer, regardless of whether or not they are used. You have drivers on your machine which you may use once and will never use again. It's not really a problem, but it does clutter up the system. DriverStore Explorer will help you to sort them out.

DriverStore Explorer will enumerate all these drivers, sort and display them in columns on the left-hand panel of its interface - you will see the name, driver class, package provider, version, installation date, and size.

The right-hand panels display your possible options. You can add a driver package to the store using the Add Package button, select and Install Driver or select and Delete Package. Drivers still in use by the system will not get deleted using this function so you can't make a mistake. There is also a Force Deletion option, and a button which will allow you to Select Old Drivers automatically by driver class and package provider.

Select and delete operations are also available in a right-click pop-up window which also has an Export option to save the selected drivers as a CSV file. Selected driver packages can be batch deleted, packages can be grouped and columns re-arranged.

DriverStore Explorer requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, and you may need to change some permissions, depending on whether or not you started the OS as admin, in order to use the install driver function. Overall, it is a useful application for exploring your driver store when making decisions on where to free up space on your system.
