    Nvidia Graphics Control Panel is missing


    I just upgraded to Windows 10 and I can't seem to find my Graphics control panel to control 3d graphics and such. It's completely gone. I use to be able to right click my desktop and go straight to it now its gone. The other way I use to get to it is by right click my desktop and going to Display Settings > Advanced Display Settings and there use to be something that would take me there too. I've gone to Device Manager and have made sure that everything is up to date. This is driving me crazy it just completely removed my graphics control panel, and I think it's reset my graphics too so I need to be able to change it but I can't. I've searched the Internet and youtube and still can't find anyone having this problem.

    This is how I use to get to it: http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/grap...ingsvista.html That is completely gone.

    Hi, can you go to Control Panel, Device Manager, Display Adapters, rt click on the device, properties, and check what driver is actually installed?

    And what device is listed there?

    I found when I upgraded from Win 8.1 that initially a basic MS driver was installed (and the screen display stretched to the right off the physical screen). Only after quite a few hours did I get an Nvidia driver automatically installed.

    It's a AMD Radeon HD 8330. The driver version is 15.200.1055.0. I can't even bring up the graphics panel though. It no longer exist anywhere.

    Hi, have you tried going to Windows Control Panel and looking for Radeon control panel (or similar)?
    That's where I can find what you're looking for..

    You do understand that an AMD card and an NVidia Card are different right? If you have an AMD card you shouldn't have NVidia's control panel, because you don't have an NVidia card. You should be looking for AMD's Catalyst Control Center, not NVidia Control Panel.

    Yeah, that's completely disappeared. NVidia was my other laptop. I use to have an AMD Catalyst tab when I right clicked on the desktop, that's gone.

    Of course, I'm not confused on that score. My laptop has an Nvidia card, McKnightRider's an AMD. But I would expect the appropriate entry should exist - AMD Catalyst in his case. Sorry if anything was unclear.

    I didn't mean to reference your post, I meant to reference the title of the thread, and make sure the OP knew that he wouldn't have the NVidia Control Panel, even though that's what he was looking for, but he'd have the Catalyst Control Center instead.
