Windows 10 Anniversary Update Effects on DisplayLink Adapters

Cable Matters adapters supported by DisplayLink software are now even easier to use and install for Windows 10 users.  With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update our DisplayLink adapters use the new native DisplayLink USB graphics support to provide forward compatibility with Windows.

Windows 10 Anniversary update builds from 14393 and onward do not require drivers to install DisplayLink adapters.  In fact, the Windows 10 Anniversary update will remove any previously installed DisplayLink software. Simply connect your device to your computer and perform display adjustments from the Windows Display Settings. This tighter integration between Windows and DisplayLink means a less cumbersome installation process and improved performance and reliability (no need to update drivers manually)!

Windows 10 provides information on how to get the anniversary update , if you haven’t done so already. DisplayLink also provides some detailed information on how this affects your DisplayLink equipped products.
