New Laptop Driver Installation

I just received my new Laptop (Dell XPS15) and as recommended went to the Dell Support page to download updated drivers and Bios updates etc. There were a total of 33 recommended updates which I downloaded but I'm unsure about which order to install them in.

In the download folder it is not easy to tell from the filename what the file is for (and it will be a bit time consuming to investigate all 33 anyway).

So my question is can I just work down the list and install one by one or should I follow a specific order to prioritise certain types of update file?

Any help appreciated - thanks.

I don't think the order matters too much, but when I do this I restart after each one. If you put them all in and there's a problem, it's difficult to work out which one's causing the fault.

However, if your new laptop is working well, I wouldn't bother with updated drivers!

If you do the BIOS one do remember not to turn off or disconnect the Laptop while it is doing it as this will make you Laptop Inoperable
