How to Uninstall Drivers in Windows 11

Hello everyone, in this article we will show you how to uninstall drivers in Windows 11. Is the updated driver not working like the previous version? Or are you thinking of changing the hardware? In both cases, you need to uninstall the driver. But alas, you donā€™t know how to do it. Donā€™t worry, guys. Not knowing something is not a disgrace, but not being curious and looking for the solution is something you should be ashamed of, right? So, without further ado, letā€™s get started.

Similarly, if you are installing or updating a driver but the Internet connection goes down in the meantime, the drivers are very likely to create problems. Then, in some cases, if a user tends to make changes to the driverā€™s registry files (DWord 32-Bit Value files), it may conflict with the proper operation of the device, and the only way out is to remove the existing drivers and install the new ones. There can be many reasons why driver uninstallation is necessary. But rather than delve into this topic, we will outline the two different methods by which you can uninstall drivers from your Windows 11 Desktop or Laptop. So without further ado, letā€™s get started. Before proceeding, we recommend you to update Windows device.
