Driver Verifier Manager is a built-in tool to identify problematic drivers and locate the fault in Windows 10/8.1.

Here are the step-by-step tips for using it to troubleshoot, and resolve common device problem.

If you would like to specify the drivers, check “Select driver names from a list” box, click Next, select which specific driver you want to debug or verify from the list. For example, the ntfs.sys file can help you figure out which driver read New Technology File System (NTFS) drives.

Clicking Cancel button doesn’t has made any changes to your system configuration, as well as click Finish will reboot the machine into Safe Mode and let you choose the choice to Roll back, Update, Disable or Uninstall the particular Driver.
