      Sometimes a manufacturer’s app will expose more features than the basic Windows interface. But if all you want is to have the devices work and not worry about anything extra then say “no”.

      Something like the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center. Microsoft provides a basic driver in Windows for mice and keyboards. Their app may expose functionality for their hardware that is not available in the basic driver. Or something like the Logitech Options app.

      This is the equivalent of GPEdit in Pro versions for blocking drivers and firmware on Windows home. It is recommended.
      You should download drivers, firmware directly from hardware OEMs.
