Fix Missing Nvidia Control Panel

1) Downloading Nvidia Control Panel

You can download the Nvidia control panel as applications from the Microsoft store. However, I won’t recommend it. The downloaded Nvidia control panel from Microsoft store has limited features and options.


Use this, if other points are not working for you.

2) Downloading Official Nvidia Driver

Instead of downloading the control panel as an application from Microsoft store, I would recommend you install Nvidia studio driver instead of the official site.

Download from Nvidia Official website and install them. If you have DCH installed in your computer, then under Nvidia advanced search, select DCH instead of standard. Otherwise, you can download Nvidia Geforce Experiences and update or reinstall your drivers from it.

Nvidia control panel might get missed due to corrupted drivers so reinstalling them might fix the problems.

How to download the official Nvidia driver?

  • Go to the official download pages of Nvidia (Websites).
  • Choose the details of your product (Graphics card). If the wrong driver is installed, that will cause issues in your pc. (See image for reference)


  • Download the latest Nvidia driver after searching and install them.

After installing, restart your computer. It will now get access to the Nvidia control panel. It will fix missing Nvidia control panel errors. If not, follow other methods.
