The examples for the command "driverquery"

Here are some examples of the `DRIVERQUERY` command in the Windows Command Prompt with explanatory comments: Example 1: Show all installed drivers:

DRIVERQUERY

This command displays a list of all installed drivers on the system. Information such as the module name, display name, type, boot mode and status of the drivers are displayed. Example 2: Show detailed information for a specific driver:

DRIVERQUERY /V /FO LIST /FI "MODULE eq ntoskrnl.exe"

This command displays detailed information about the driver with the module name "ntoskrnl.exe". The `/V` options display detailed information, and `/FO LIST` formats the output as a list. Example 3: Save list of drivers to a text file:

DRIVERQUERY /FO TABLE > Driverlist.txt

Here the list of installed drivers is saved in a text file called "Driverlist.txt". The `/FO TABLE` option formats the output as a table. Example 4: Show only active drivers:

DRIVERQUERY /FO LIST /FI "STATUS eq Running"

This command displays a list of all active (running) drivers. The `/FI "STATUS eq Running"` option filters the drivers according to their status. Example 5: Filtering drivers by type:

DRIVERQUERY /FO LIST /FI "IMAGETYPE eq Kernel Mode Driver"

Only kernel mode drivers are shown here. The `/FI "IMAGETYPE eq Kernel Mode Driver"` option filters the drivers by their image type. Example 6: Export driver information as a CSV file:

DRIVERQUERY /FO CSV > driver information.csv

This command exports the driver information to a CSV file named "driverinformation.csv". This can be useful for further processing the data in spreadsheet programs. These examples are intended to give you an insight into how to use the `DRIVERQUERY` command to retrieve information about drivers on a Windows system. Note that administrative privileges may be required to access some driver information.
