By clicking you're skipping this existing driver selection process and telling Windows 7 that you have better drivers you'd like to install that it isn't yet aware of. The name of this screen will be different depending on the kind of hardware you're updating the drivers for.
A more generic drop-down box and/or the shortcuts on the left to navigate to the folder with the extracted driver files that you created in Step 2.
wizard will read the information from all the INF files in this folder.
INF files are the only files that Device Manager accepts for driver setup information.
Note: In some cases, simply browsing to the extracted folder location would be good enough here but the here.
The zero, one, or more entries in that box don't directly represent the actual device(s) you have installed but instead represent the available drivers that Windows 7 has for this particular piece of hardware.
Windows 7 has built-in compression/decompression software but I prefer a dedicated program like the free 7-Zip, mainly because it supports so many more formats than Windows 7 does natively.
Note: This walkthrough demonstrates the driver update process in Windows 7 Ultimate but all steps can be followed exactly in any edition of Windows 7, including Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Starter, etc.
For example, you might need to update drivers in Windows 7 for a piece of hardware if you're troubleshooting a problem with the device, if a driver isn't automatically installed during a Windows 7 installation, or if a driver update enables new features you'd like to utilize.
