Q. How can I get a list of all third-party drivers installed on my system with Windows 7?

A. The Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool command can be used to list all drivers that aren't included with the OS. Use the /online switch to tell DISM to use the current online image and the /get-drivers switch. An example is shown below with part of the output.

C:\>dism /online /get-drivers
