The driver is usually installed when you install the board cores.


INSTALL CORES


Open the IDE (1.8.5 upward)



Select TOOLS, BOARD, BOARD MANAGER



In board manager type NANO or MKR etc into the empty box and press enter.
Wait for the selections to complete




Select your particular board and click the INSTALL.
WAIT until the install is complete
Although not required it may be worth closing the IDE before using your new board.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

Hello,

I'm new with MKR Zero boards, I followed the steps that you said, however, the system is not showing me anything when I type 'MKR' on the Boards Manager browser (literally nothing is being listed). I'm using Arduino 1.8.10 IDE on a Windows 10 OS.

When I left empty the BM browser it only shows the 'Arduino AVR Boards' block.

Not that I think it makes much difference but did you use lower or upper case ?
Also here have been many different reported issues with 1.8.10 and the general advice seems to be to roll back to 1.8.9.


Does the hardware show ANYTHING or make the hardware found noise in windows device manager when you plug it in or unplug it.

Hello Bob;

Just solved, I reinstalled the IDE and then I was able to download it (I don't know why, but it worked).

Thanks,

Not sure how you fixed it either LOL.
But glad you did.
Have fun but be warned these little gadgets can become addictive. :smiley-lol:
