Dell support lists drivers for my system I've already installed!

When I go to support and look for drivers for my specific system it shows all of them, including ones I've already installed. I want to see only the ones I need (e.g., have been updated since I last checked) but can't figure out how to do that? I don't want to go through all 20 drivers every few months and download reinstall the 18 or so that I've already done. Can you tell me what tool I need? Thanks.

RE: Dell support lists drivers for my system I've already installed!

Unfortunately, looking for drivers by Service Tag can be buggy. And some times a driver may have a new "Updated" date, even though the driver, itself. hasn't been changed, and that can confuse things.

It's usually a good idea to keep track yourself of what you've installed so then you only have to download what you need. And go by version number, not by dates.

The "Updated" date may change because Dell reloaded the driver on their site or may have modified the installer .exe without changing the driver. So release dates are less important than version number....
