If you use Graphics-intensive software such as games like Minecraft, then you may come across OpenGL driver errors in Windows.
What is OpenGL
OpenGL is developed and maintained by the Khronos Group. OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a cross-platform graphics API used in computer graphics and video games.
As OpenGL is a Library and therefore doesn’t have its own Drivers, to update Drivers you will need to update your graphics driver.
How do I update OpenGL Drivers?
If you get an error message saying the OpenGL driver (Intel OpenGL driver, NVIDIA OpenGL driver or others.) is having problems, then you need to update your Graphics Driver. When you have problems with the OpenGL Driver (as mentioned above the Driver is not actually OpenGL but the Graphics Card), it means the graphics card driver need to be updated.
If you need to update OpenGL this means you need to update the graphics card driver.
How do I update my graphics card driver
There are two ways to update your graphics card driver. you can manually update the Drivers or you can use an automatic update tool to find and install the Drivers for you.
Update the graphics card driver manually
To update your graphics card manually you will first need to identify what graphics card is installed on your computer.
You will also need to know which operating system version your PC is running.
If you haven’t got the time or resources to download the Graphics Driver manually, then you can use a Driver Update Tool to automate this process for you. A Driver Update Tool will keep all your drivers up-to-date, not just the graphics drivers.
