What you found from the Window device manager is that there is an Arduino Uno device

Double click the unknown Arduino Uno device, a property window pops up


Choose the 'Driver' tab, and select 'Update Driver...'

Go to the Arduino IDE (also known as the Arduino Software) directory, and select the 'drivers' direction, then click 'OK'
