If you’re running an Nvidia graphics card, you probably have installed GeForce Experience. And now one of the key features from it seems lost, so we look into the Nvidia control panel missing.

The Nvidia control panel is one of the more in-depth option panels to get the most out of your GPU. It was a place to change system-wide settings to do with your card and plenty of 3D settings.

These could include changing power settings, Vsync system-wide, resolution and refresh rate, and plenty of options. So previously you may right-click on the tray icon and find the control panel there above GeForce Experience.

However, recently some users, including us have found the panel selection missing. So if you were hoping to change out some of those, you might need to look elsewhere.

We’re not sure why the option was moved. Either Windows or Nvidia itself updated it to move it from there, but fret not there are other ways to access it.

How to access the Nvidia control panel

Now if you’re needing to access the control panel still, there are some alternative ways to access it. So even if has been moved away from your favorite place of access there are alternatives.

Firstly, you can access the option on the desktop. Right-clicking on your desktop and pulling up your sub-menu should also provide an option for the control panel.

Whilst another way that is standard for most programs is just searching for it. In windows search, or just finding it in the menus, you can find the executable in there.

With that, you can also put it into your desktop or toolbar with the options. This means if it still doesn’t come back to the tray, you can more easily find it as well.

This means that if you’re planning to stretch your CSGO resolution, you can find it again.
