Windows 10: Nvidia physx properties

    Nvidia physx properties

    I noticed in the control panel Ďlarge iconsí view there are two entries for nvidia. One for nvidia control panel and one for physx properties. The physx icon is missing, just a blank sheet. And if clicked it opens nothing, I forget the message about something missing that comes up. Itís almost as if itís been removed / left over from old drivers (they always update with every feature update). Currently I run a 980ti on 385.69 drivers which seem to be great and rock solid. My question is are the physx properties purely taken care of within nvidia control panel now? I see a section for physx if I open nvidia control panel

    I only have one icon in my control panel. Try a clean install of your driver and also choose physx

    This is based on I think you are talking about windows control panel as shown here

    Thank you. Yes thatís what Iím referring to. Next to that I have the PhysX properties Ďpaper sheetí generic icon that does nothing. As everything seems to work well Iíll leave it alone but I was concerned as to whether I am missing something important. I get the impression everything is now rolled up in nvidia control panel. I donít go in for that GeForce experience stuff so having just the control panel to meet all functions/needs suits me. Iíll continue to trust (!) windows update and feature updates to update the gpu driver periodically as so far itís not caused any issues

    cheers, Wayne

    I suggest uninstalling the GPU driver then use Driver Sweeper to find and delete old video driver files

    Then reinstall the latest NVidia GPU driver. Note some old games require a legacy PhysX driver to be installed.

    I only have what @Dude has. I don't have a PhysX properties in the Control Panel. I have them in the Nvidia Control Panel. You can look in the uninstall a program and see if PhysX is installed. if it is, it should be fine, I would think.

    I thought MS was removing the old control panel screen so nobody gets confused by all those listings :)

    Does yours even do anything? I’m not at my machine but it throws up an error/message about something being missing. I think all the physx stuff is now all controlled within nvidia control panel so this link/entry is redundant but just didn’t get cleaned / removed during the last driver update (during the feature update install). I haven’t had any notable issues so I am just going to ignore it.
