If the driver won't install and you are using a supported operating system, try one or both of the following:

  • Plug a Thunderbolt device into the Intel NUC and run the installer again.
  • Uninstall the current driver, then run the installer again.

The Thunderbolt Control Center should load automatically after the driver is installed and if or when you're connected to the Internet. If it doesn't, you can download it from this link: Thunderbolt Control Center software (available on the Microsoft Store)

The Thunderbolt Control Center allows you to approve and manage Thunderbolt devices.
