If your Windows device has NIVIDIA graphics and NVIDIA display drivers installed, you will have the NVIDIA Control Panel available.
By default, the NVIDIA Control Panel notification tray icon will show on the taskbar.
The NVIDIA Control Panel is NVIDIA’s hardware control application that unlocks the features of NVIDIA drivers. The NVIDIA Control Panel was designed by NVIDIA’s dedicated user interface team to revolutionize software ease-of-use and ensure that set-up and configuration of your NVIDIA hardware has never been easier.
The NVIDIA Control Panel contains settings and adjustments for NVIDIA GPUs and MCPs. In similar fashion, the NVIDIA Control Panel now applies the same depth of control to the rest of the core components within the system. Without ever leaving Windows or entering the BIOS users can optimize and adjust nearly every system component to minimize noise, increase stability, and maximize performance.
This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the NVIDIA Control Panel notification tray icon on the taskbar for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
