  • Hi Peggy Shearer,

    As Luigi Bruno mentioned, you may revert the driver to the previous version by [Restore].
    [Control Panel] > [System and Security] > [Backup and Restore] >
        
    [Recover system settings or your computer] > [Open System Restore] > [Next]
        

    *** note ***
       You may not be able to see what you want in the list. 
       System Restore points are not always created. Sometimes it is not created.
       But you can create it manually.

    I hope you will provide name and version of the driver you want to revert.

    The simplest action you could take is applying a restore point to revert back your system to the state it was before updating the driver.
    As an alternative, open the Windows Device Manager, right click the device whose driver you've updated, right click it and choose the option to uninstall; then you can restart your PC and reinstall the driver version you prefer.

    Bye.
