How to Install the Intel® Graphics Control Panel


Install & Setup



The Intel® Graphics Control Panel is no longer included in the driver installer with Windows Declarative Componentized Hardware (DCH) Graphics drivers. These are the drivers used by most systems running on Windows® 10.  If you install a DCH driver, the Intel® Graphics Control Panel should download and install automatically from the Microsoft Store. For more information about DCH Graphics drivers, see our FAQ.

If the Intel® Graphics Control Panel is not automatically installed, you can manually install it from the Microsoft Store using the following information. However, we recommend that you install the Intel Graphics Command Center in its place. Refer to this article for the Intel Graphics Command Center installation instructions.

The minimum system requirements for the Intel® Graphics Control Panel are:

Steps To Install:

Why was the Intel® Graphics Control Panel removed from the graphics driver installer package?
