    How to Add or Remove NVIDIA Control Panel Notification Tray Icon on Taskbar in Windows


    If your Windows device has NIVIDIA graphics and NVIDIA display drivers installed, you will have the NVIDIA Control Panel available.

    By default, the NVIDIA Control Panel notification tray icon will show on the taskbar.

    The NVIDIA Control Panel is NVIDIA's hardware control application that unlocks the features of NVIDIA drivers. The NVIDIA Control Panel was designed by NVIDIA's dedicated user interface team to revolutionize software ease-of-use and ensure that set-up and configuration of your NVIDIA hardware has never been easier.

    The NVIDIA Control Panel contains settings and adjustments for NVIDIA GPUs and MCPs. In similar fashion, the NVIDIA Control Panel now applies the same depth of control to the rest of the core components within the system. Without ever leaving Windows or entering the BIOS users can optimize and adjust nearly every system component to minimize noise, increase stability, and maximize performance.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the NVIDIA Control Panel notification tray icon on the taskbar for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    Missing Notification area Icon in Windows 10 control Panel

    When Iinstalled Windows 10 the Notification Area was long in the task bar, but the PC crashed so I had to reset windows 10. Initially all the non-Windows applications were removed. I had to re-install them again, since the refresh/reset I have
    noticed that the Notification Area is minimal and to see all icons I have to use the up arrow on the side of the system tray. I have looked in the Control Panel and disappeared that the Notification Area Icon is not available. I have tried Refresh/Reset again
    just to get the icon back in the Control Panel. This has not happened. Has
    Microsoft permanently removed the Notification Area Icon from the control Panel? If so, how can I increase the length of the Notification Area/System Tray in the Task Bar?

    where is NVIDIA control panel in windows 10?

    I cannot seem to get the nvidia control panel (system tray)
    I tried everything I could think of:

    - Nvidia driver uninstall + device uninstall + change device auto install drivers in hardware settings + clean install... no joy...
    - Windows automatically installs some nvidia drivers, no matter what I try and I can't see or find the control panel.

    Any suggestions?
