Okay so I've reinstalled Win 10 on my laptop. The manufacturer's site has a list of a dozen or so drivers. So far everything seems to be working without drivers. Which ones do I need to install? Are any of them required? Does Win 10 come with all the drivers I need?

Windows is "pretty good" nowadays installing drivers for all detected HW. The most likely issue is those drivers are out of date (GPU drivers are notoriously behind the official release by a few months), but for most stuff (motherboard, etc.) if there hasn't been an update in the past six months you probably already have the latest versions installed.
