I know you can use a minidump file to check for outdated drivers
, but what if you don't have any dump files or anything recent? I want to know if there's a way to check all my drivers like you would in the dump file for outdated drivers? aka drivers that need to be updated and could possibly cause problems.
I've tried Google but all I see are using Windows Update or checking Device Manager which isn't very helpful.
As an example, from this thread
I created a long time ago, this user gave me a list of outdated drivers:

I was never able to figure out how he did that, so I'm hoping one of you know. The reason I'm doing this is because I recently had to do a System Repair and I remember having driver
issues (like in that thread
) before. Currently my desktop icons that I have set to transparent are showing as black boxes.
