Arduino software is needed to program Arduino boards and must be downloaded from the Arduino website and installed on a computer. This article shows how to download and install the Arduino IDE software and drivers on a Windows 10 computer. Go to the Arduino Software download page where you will find two downloads for Windows — Windows installer and Windows ZIP as shown in the image below. You can choose either of the two Windows options, but I prefer to use the ZIP file because it keeps the Windows system cleaner.
The Windows Installer version of the software will download an installer which will install the software into the Windows system. The Windows ZIP file allows you to unzip the Arduino IDE to any location of your choice and easily remove it if you want by simply deleting the unzipped folder. After clicking the download link, you will have the option of making a donation to Arduino or just downloading the file for free.
After downloading the Arduino Windows ZIP file, simply double-click it and then copy the folder from inside the zip file to the desired location. I prefer to copy it to my desktop.
To avoid any confusion: Open the folder that you extracted from the zipped file and double click arduino. If you can not see file extension the. If you want to create a shortcut to the Arduino IDE on your desktop, start dragging the arduino. This will create a shortcut to the Arduino IDE instead of moving the file to the desktop.
Make sure that you have not moved the arduino. When you plug an Arduino board into a Windows 10 computer, a driver should automatically be installed for it. Open the Device Manager window by right-clicking the Windows 10 start button in the lower left of the screen and then selecting Device Manager on the menu that pops up.
If you have other COM ports on the PC, then unplug the Arduino to see which COM port disappears from the device manager, then plug the Arduino back in and see which port appears — this will be the Arduino port, e. COM4 in the image below. The drivers that come with the Arduino software can be installed instead of the default Windows 10 driver, which is explained next. In the Device Manager, right-click the COM port that was identified as the Arduino the Arduino must be plugged into the computer first.
Select Update Driver Software In the next dialog box, make sure that Include subfolders is checked and then click the Browse In the dialog box that pops up, navigate to the drivers subfolder of the Arduino folder that you unzipped earlier.
Click the drivers folder to select it and then click the OK button. Back in the Update Driver Software dialog box, the correct path to search for the drivers is set.
Click the Next button to start the driver installation. After the driver has been installed, a dialog box will appear that shows that the driver has been successfully updated and will display the Arduino COM port number.

I am having an issue in windows I am trying to install a driver for an arduino uno. When I plug the arduino in, windows automatically installs some driver for it. It is not the proper driver, and windows will not let me change the driver by right clicking the device in device manger, and selecting update driver. I don't know what else to do. It is getting on my nerves.
How to Install Arduino Software and Drivers on Windows 10
There are some choices to be made when installing Arduino software and drivers in Windows This driver can be replaced by the Arduino driver that comes with the Arduino software. Installing Arduino software using the Windows zip file is the simplest method of installing the software. It is just a matter of copying the folder out of the downloaded zip file into the desired location on the PC. This allows the software to easily be removed by deleting the folder. It is not recognized as an Arduino, although it will work properly and code from the Arduino IDE can be loaded to it. The difference is shown in the image below.
