The Intel® Graphics Control Panel is no longer included in the driver installer with Windows Declarative Componentized Hardware (DCH) Graphics drivers and needs to be downloaded and installed separately from the Microsoft Store. These are the drivers used by most systems running on Windows® 10. For more information about DCH Graphics drivers, see our FAQ.
We recommend that you install the Intel® Graphics Command Center in place of the Intel® Graphics Control Panel. Refer to this article for the Intel Graphics Command Center installation instructions.
