It seems to be the only option at the moment for directly managing the windows driver store.

It's hard to give this app a particularly good review. If you manually go through the driver list and attempt to remove drivers that are obviously not in use, it fails to remove almost all of them.

I was tinkering with an old LG phone a few months ago, but I've since removed all related devices and applications from my system. Driver Store Explorer can't delete any of the LG drivers even though they can't possibly be in use.

There's a BlackBerry driver. This laptop hasn't touched a BlackBerry for years and there are certainly no ghost devices lying around (I've made sure of that). Driver Store Explorer can't remove this driver either.

There's a driver for the game streaming software "Rainway". I uninstalled that months ago. Driver Store Explorer can't remove it.

The same goes for a bunch of printer drivers and Logitech drivers squatting on my system.

It's still useful and will remove what apparently amounts to low-hanging fruit, but don't expect to be able to give your driver store a thorough clean. It seems that the app can't do that, and I have no idea why!
