intel microcode: this device is using an alternative driver

When clicking drivers, it says: intel microcode: this device is using an alternative driver
1 properietary driver in use

No idea if I should worry about this? Is the device working? If not, what exactly is not working?

Is tbere a recommended driver in driver manager. If so you can use it.
