I am attempting to reconfigure my Win 7 PC so that it automatically updates my drivers through the use of the Device Installation Settings feature. Though, when I go to Device and Printers and RIGHT click on a device I do not get all the options that include Device Installation Settings.

As seen on this Microsoft tech support page - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2500967


Does anyone know why I'm not getting the right click option and access this feature?

Are you RIGHT-clicking on the icon for your computer, per the article?

I just tried it in Windows 8.1 and had no problems.

By default, it is set up to install the drivers.

Regards. . .

I'm running Win 7 . All I see when I right click on a device inside Control Panel>All Control Panel Items> Device and Printers is:

Browse Files
Eject
Create Shortcut
Troubleshoot
Properties

That's it. i don't get the FULL menu with all the options thus allowing me to click on Device Installation Settings

A couple of issues here.

1) When inside Control Panel>All Control Panel Items> Device and Printers I only see perfs like my monitor, mouse, keyboard etc.... I DO NOT see my PC as an icon.

2) Therefore I cannot right-click on the PC icon because it's not there.
