The thing about PC is that it has specific drivers for specific operations. There will be a separate driver for a keyboard and a separate drive for a mouse. In that case, you need to update the drivers individually to ensure that all the drivers are in the new version. In the same way, you need to update the WiFi driver in your Windows 10 PC frequently.
