How to Remove Previous Driver Versions

When you update an existing driver, Windows will keep the old version stored on your system. This is so that you can easily roll back to the working version if the new one causes trouble.
Old drivers do take up space, though, so if you’d rather forgo that protection then you can remove them all. Remember, if you regret your choice, you can usually find previous drivers from the device manufacturer’s website.
To get started, press Windows key + R to open Run. Input cleanmgr and click OK. Select your main system drive from the drop-down and click OK. Disk Cleanup will then open. Click Clean up system files. You might need to select your system drive again.
This will then bring up a window containing a list of things you can delete to save system space. Feel free to tick the boxes of other items, but the pertinent one for us is Device driver packages. Once selected, click OK and it will delete your older driver versions.
