HTC 10 USB Drivers – Download Now

For users and new owners of the HTC 10, first thing you should probably do is install correct USB drivers for your shiny new chamfered smartphone. HTC 10 is probably the best phone coming from the brand in quite some time now. Not only has the physical button layout has returned but you can also expand storage on this HTC unibody phone. The specifications are truly astounding but with this post we are aiming to fix a major problem, which is people connecting their phones to their computers without the proper USB drivers. HTC provides a universal driver package which is to be installed once on your system. After the installation, your computer will be able to properly recognize HTC devices without any hassle, including the new HTC 10. USB drivers also come in handy when you are trying to modify/tweak your phone, which most Android enthusiasts undoubtedly do. Be it just normal music and media transfers or testing your newest app build, you should install correct USB drivers on your phone through this guide. The detailed article below will show you each step in installing correct USB drivers for the HTC 10. Proper download links and reference articles for HTC 10 have been included as well.

The download link present in our tutorial will guide you to a package which is universal to all HTC phones including the new 10.  Due to security issues, a phone cannot be simply connected to a PC and act as a USB. If you have a lock code, you would first have to bypass that on your phone, then connect it. The USB drivers on the PC end allow you to transfer files properly without any hassle. If you are looking for fastboot drivers, we have a link for that as well. You won’t have to install the full SDK just to get to the fastboot. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.
