Scans your computer and automatically downloads missing driver packs from the Internet, while providing you with multiple configuration options
You are probably familiar with having a hard time finding drivers after a clean install of your operating system.
You can install them from driver discs that the PC manufacturer probably provided you with or you can search on the product’s website. However, there is a more convenient way to identify and download missing drivers: relying on third party software.
One of the applications that can help you achieve that is Snappy Driver Installer.
Given that it is a portable application, no installation is required, it does not modify Windows registries, nor does it create additional folders.
Simple user interface
This application comes with a minimalistic design that displays all the driver packs that it detects as missing from your computer. Although no additional configuration window is provided, you can toggle the Expert Mode, which activates a series of settings related to item visibility.
For instance, you can toggle the application to display drivers that are newer, current, older or that are not installed at all. Additionally, you can set it to show only the best solutions and also duplicate or invalid entries.
Useful restore point function
Snappy Driver Installer can easily create a system restore point, in case something goes wrong during the driver installation or you are not satisfied with the result.
Hovering your mouse pointer over any driver pack in the list displays in-depth information regarding the installed one and another one that is available to download and install. These details include the name of the provider, signature, version of the driver, release date and ID.
Handy log generator
This program generates detailed log files each time it performs an action, be it downloading files or installing drivers, and saves them on your computer. You can easily access them by hitting the corresponding button on the interface.
In conclusion, Snappy Driver Installer can help you identify and download missing driver files for your PC in an easy, convenient way.
