Remove present and non-present monitors?

Post by Spartan »

Can you please educate me on why this says (highly recommended) next to it?

I would like to know the details of why so please out of curiosity. What does it have anything to do with the Graphics drivers and also, most monitors/laptop screens don't even have a driver they say Generic PnP monitor in device manager so what gives?

Thanks

This remove the generic pnp monitor. When we update the GPU driver, a new "instance" of the Generic pnp monitor is installed.
If you change often GPU drivers, then you will have many "instance" of theses monitor drivers in device manager. (can be seen with shown hidden devices).
That is why I recommend to remove it.
