Driver Software

Driver Software
Software used to make computer peripherals function. Driver software is written specifically for the device to allow it to work with a particular operating system of the computer. If you upgrade your computer operating system, such as moving from Windows 98 to Windows XP then you will normally require new driver software for each of your peripherals. However, depending on the peripheral, more modern versions of Windows may already come supplied with the necessary drivers.

Driver software is more commonly referred to as a device driver.
