Part 1: I want to check my version of DirectX

Before we do a DirectX update, we might have to check out our version of DirectX first. Here’s how:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key   , then copy & paste dxdiag into the box and click dxdiag.
  2. Check out your DirectX version in the first page of the report.

Part 2: 3 steps to update DirectX 

Considering DirectX is an integral part of Windows 10 operating system, we might have to use Windows Update to update DirectX (no stand-alone package available). To do so:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key   and type check. Then click Check for updates.
  2. Click Check for updates.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions so that Windows Update will automatically download & install the latest DirectX for you (included in the updates).

Part 3: Use Driver Easy to further improve your gaming experience (Bonus trick)

A latest version of DirectX sure has it merit in improving our gaming experience, but making sure we have the most up-to-date sound and graphics drivers can just be as important. 

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. 

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee): 

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
  3. You can upgrade to the Pro version and click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of ALL the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.
    You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

That’s it. Hope this article serves its purpose and feel free to comment below if you have any other further questions. ?
