#StackBounty: #windows-10 #drivers #usb-3 #chipset How to make my onboard USB 3.0 ports non-removable?

Bounty: 50

Ever since Microsoft released Windows 8 and then Windows 10, Intel stopped releasing new drivers for their USB 3.0 ports integrated into their newer chipsets. They let Microsoft do the work. I have a Z270 motherboard and the Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensive Host Controller is currently removable.

USB 3.0 ports removable?

From the Device Manager, the problematic drivers:

Intel Host Controller

Windows Update does say I have the latest driver. With Intel not releasing any new driver, what are my options to make those ports non-removable in Windows 10, considering I obviously can’t remove them without going into my BIOS settings?
