- 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.
