Now why would you want to do this? There are a few reasons. For example, if your system has been working properly for a long time, and then you decide to install a new device driver to take advantage of a new feature. If that device driver conflicts with something, or is just buggy then by pressing the roll back button, you can restore your previous driver.
Note: This feature can be accessed in Safe Mode.
To roll back a device driver to a previous version:
- Right-click on 'My Computer' and select 'Manage.'
- Click the Hardware tab.
- Press the 'Device Manager' and double-click on the device whose drivers you want to roll back.
- Click the Driver tab
- Press the 'Roll Back Driver' button.
