“I want Logitech keyboard and mouse driver. Please help!” “Windows 10 mouse not working.”

A keyboard or mouse driver is a program which allows communication between the keyboard or mouse and your Windows computer. A compatible driver will make the keyboard and mouse work properly. Outdated, incompatible or corrupted mouse, keyboard or touchpad drivers will definitely disrupt the work. It’s recommended to download or update keyboard and mouse drivers regularly on your Windows PC to avoid conflicts:

  • Update your keyboard driver if the keyboard has hot keys that are not working properly.

  • Download newest drivers if the drivers are corrupted because of the recent power outages, viruses, or other computer problems.

  • Install the compatible drivers if you recently upgraded to new Windows OS, such as Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 7.

  • Download drivers if the computer doesn’t recognize your new keyboard or mouse.

If you find any problem related to keyboard or mouse, you can download the best-matched drivers or update to the latest drivers. It can quickly fix all these problems, especially when the keyboard or mouse is not working after Windows 10 update.
