Some months ago we introduced to you the driverquery.exe tool and how to convert its output to PowerShell objects. Here's now an amazing function that turns this command-line tool into a graphical tool that lists drivers from both local and remote systems (if you have appropriate permissions):

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