Do you want your new HTC devices to work efficiently on your Windows 10 Fall Creators Update/Creators Update/Anniversary Update or other Windows OS with the stable and the latest HTC drivers?

Recently, HTC, the Taiwanese manufacture of smartphones and tablets released their new electronic products, HTC Vive and HTC 10 smartphone, which takes people's great notice of this highly controversial company again. HTC Vive, the VR headset for games, requires a high graphics card PC configuration, while the new smartphone needs a well-worked USB connection. If you search on the website of Google, you can really find a large number of links that provide HTC devices drivers download and update. Some of them are direct links of the series of drivers (Note: HTC official site provides no HTC devices drivers), and the rest links point to some tools helping you download and manage HTC drivers.

And what if the tools for HTC driver install are full of spyware and spam?
