How to Add Games in the Intel® Graphics Command Center


Steps on how to scan and add games to the Intel® Graphics Command Center.


An installed game does not appear in the gaming section of the Intel® Graphics Command Center.


To add a game in the Intel® Graphics Command Center, follow these steps:

  1. From the Windows Start Menu, search for the Intel® Graphics Command Center. Double click the Intel® Graphics Command Center icon.
  2. Go to the Home tab and under the Games section click Auto Detect. This will scan for all supported games and allow you to select which games you want to add. You may also click Manually Select to manually add the games.

Games downloaded from the Microsoft Store cannot be added through Auto Detect or Manual selection as of Intel® Graphics Command Center build 1.100.2765.0. Intel is currently looking to enhance the application's compatibility with games from the Microsoft Store.

Additional information

The Intel Graphics Command Center will attempt to locate these games at typical installation locations. However, some games can’t be detected because they have a separate launcher (for example, Steam*, Epic* and others). The Intel Graphics Command Center may detect some games from these launchers but it may not locate all of them. We're adding discoverable games to our catalog regularly. There are also times when a game is updated and a configuration in game has changed so the game becomes undetectable with the existing parameters. This will require an update to the Intel Graphics Command Center, which will make this game detectable again. However, you can always add games manually via the “+” button (Add Games).
