NVIDIA Control Panel: Control Center for NVIDIA Video Card
What is the NVIDIA Control Panel?
NVIDIA Control Panel is a hardware control application developed by NVIDIA. It provides a graphical interface for the NVIDIA users to adjust their video card settings on their Windows computer. This application is a part of the NVIDIA graphics driver package. It will be automatically installed on your computer when you install a NVIDIA graphics driver on your computer.
How to get NVIDIA Control Panel?
NVIDIA Control Panel is a part of the NVIDIA graphics driver package. So the only way to download and install the application is to update or reinstall your graphics driver.
There are two ways you can get an NVIDIA graphics driver:
Option 1 – Manually – You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your drivers this way, because you need to find exactly the right the driver online, download it and install it step by step.
Option 2 – Automatically (Recommended) – This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.
NVIDIA keeps updating drivers. To get them, you need to go to the NVIDIA website, find the drivers corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and download the driver manually.
Once you’ve downloaded the correct drivers for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.
If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your NVIDIA graphics driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click the Update button next to your NVIDIA graphics card to download the correct version of this driver, then you can install it on your own. Or click Update All to automatically update all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).
