SlimDrivers facilitate an easier installation process of drivers. They are important as they ensure that the functionality of the hardware elements is perfect and in accordance to the operating system. This means that the drivers act as a bridge of communication between the hardware and the software of a computer – if drivers are not constantly updated or even installed on a computer, this might run faulty and errors might appear. The video card is usually the one that has the most obvious problems when the video drivers are not updated to the newest versions.
However, installing drivers is probably the most annoying part regarding the installation process of a fresh operating system, when all the drivers need to be updated at once. The user has to search manually for each driver, according to the model of the hardware. Then he has to download and install each software. Nowadays there are special applications dedicated to this, such as SlimDrivers, that allow people to take a break while the tool does almost everything regarding the process of installing the drivers.
The program analyzes the computer’s specs within seconds and in another few seconds it also contacts the download websites for each driver, then the download can start. Afterwards, the user can select all the drivers that he wants to install and he will get through this process with ease. This step could have been automated, like the rest of the process, but some drivers have additional features. These options are better left to the user so he can make the correct decision when it comes to his own computer. This application is a small but neat one and the interface is really easy to use, as there are not too many options that could become confusing.
