Display a list of all installed device drivers and their properties.

      driverquery  [/s Computer] [/u Domain\User /p Password]
         [/fo {TABLE|LIST|CSV}] [/nh] [/v] [/si]

   /s Computer     The name or IP address of a remote computer
                  (do not use backslashes). Default = local computer.

   /u Domain\User  Run the command with the account permissions of the
                   user specified. Default = the currently logged on user.

   /p Password     The password of the user account that is specified in the /u parameter.

   /fo { TABLE | LIST | CSV } 
                   Format the output. Default = TABLE.

   /nh   Omit the header row from the displayed driver information.
         Valid when the /fo parameter is set to TABLE or CSV.

   /v    Display verbose driver information.

   /si   Display digital signature information for all device drivers. 

When running DriverQuery within PowerShell, the CSV output format can be used to turn the output into objects. The PowerShell function below turns DriverQuery into a graphical tool that will list drivers from both local and remote systems (assuming you have the appropriate permissions.)

function Show-DriverDialog {
        $ComputerName = $env:computername
    driverquery.exe /S $ComputerName /FO CSV  | 
      ConvertFrom-Csv | 
      Out-GridView -Title "Driver on \\$ComputerName"
