How to skip obtaining driver from windows update.

Whenever you plug a new USB device on your Windows Vista/7/8 machine and you are connected to the Internet, the operating system automatically tries to get the latest version of the driver.

This feature is really useful when you need to install new devices now and then and you need to stay updated. But, this feature can also be a real pain if you need to plug the same type of devices again and again.

There is an option to 'Skip obtaining the driver from Windows Update' but clicking it again every-time is a real nuisance.
Luckily, there is an option to disable this feature and install the device drivers from your local disk every time.

  • Go to the Windows Start Menu.
  • Right-click on Computer.
  • Select Properties.

  • Click Advanced System Settings.
Windows 7 Advanced System Settings

  • Click on the Hardware tab.
  • Click the Device Installation Settings button.

  • Click the No, let me choose what to do radio button.
  • Click the Install driver software from Windows Update if it is not found on my computer radio button. (the Save The Squirrels button).
  • Click Save Changes.

That is it. Now the driver will always be installed locally.
