Here comes a very easy way with a single dos command, DriverQuery.exe.
Open the dos prompt window, and type in
And here it goes:
The driverquery.exe is a console command that displays a list of all installed device drivers and their properties. Without any switches, it retrieves a list of drivers from the local computer. If you want to do the same from a remote computer, you can use the switch /s.
driverquery.exe /s computername
You can also export the list into a file in 3 formats: Table, List, or CSV, simply using the switch /fo.
driverquery.exe /fo csv
However, you may find the output is still a bit of overwhelmed. So here, with a little help from PowerShell, we can actually have a better list that has the information we needed.
Open the PowerShell console by typing in “PowerShell” in the start menu, and pipe the drivequery output to convertfrom-csv command with select-object.
PS>driverquery.exe /v /fo csv | ConvertFrom-CSV | Select-Object ‘Display Name’, ‘Start Mode’, ‘Paged Pool(bytes)’, Path
This looks much better.
