How do I stop Windows 10 from updating my graphics driver?

Every time Windows 10 runs updates (which I see no way to control), it updates my graphics driver. I like the old one because it is faster. So, I have to reinstall it. This is getting to be a pain. Is there any way to stop Windows 10 from updating it again? site

You can prevent Windows Update from installing graphics drivers through Group Policy.

This does not effect the security, quality, patch, or any other type update...they are presented as normal.

In don't have to worry about WU installing (changing) AMD graphics drivers.

Type gpedit in the search bar...follow > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update




On the right side scroll to Do not include drivers with Windows Update policy and double click it. Select the ENABLED option.






Click 'Apply' then OK.

Reboot your computer.
