Also ninite can only be used to get common programs like chrome, steam, ect and not drivers.

The thing with drivers is, that you rarely need to update them. Usually its for fixing something not working properly. Otherwise you don't need to install anything but initial ones. Some drivers, like for keyboard, mouse etc. can add extra features, but those also have box to tick for informing you about available updates. Same with GPU updates.

I'm a firm believer in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and that is especially true with drivers. The latest drivers aren't always the greatest and the ones MS tries to ram down our throats aren't even always the latest. If a driver is working just fine and a new driver isn't to correct a security issue or add a feature you really want or need, the best thing to do is leave well enough alone (the same is true of program updates; I've seen perfectly good programs get ruined by updates).

It's called SDIO

 

Snappy Driver Installer Origin

 

https://sdi-tool.org/

 

Download the LITE Version

When you open it click DOWNLOAD INDEXES ONLY

Then it will show you all the drivers,

tick the ones you want, press go and sit back and relax.

Well, if you have no time to install drivers from manufacturer's websites, then you'll have no time to install that automatic drivers installers that needs sometimes even more time to run and do their job.
