You right-click on your desktop and cannot find the “NVIDIA Control Panel” option in the menu. You could have sworn you had it before.
Meh, no issues, you’re a computer genius, you know what you’re going to do next. So, you go to the Windows Control Panel and click on “NVIDIA Control Panel”.
Now you’re feeling not-so-computer-genius-ical.
Well, this guide didn’t even require so much build up, I’ll just get straight into it.
Step 1: Navigate to NVIDIA Control Panel Manually
Since we cannot make the NVIDIA Control Panel come to us, we shall get ourselves to it.
Go to the following folder in your system:
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Control Panel Client\
You’ll find the following files here:
Here, NVCPLUI.exe is the NVIDIA Control Panel. Double-click it and you should see the NVIDIA Control Panel open.
Step 2.1: Shortcut for the future [Optional]
Just so you do not have to navigate all the way to the Control Panel Client folder again, make a shortcut of NVCPLUI.exe on the desktop by right-clicking on NVCPLUI.exe, clicking “Send to” and then clicking “Desktop (create shortcut)”, as shown below:
This—obviously—will literally create a shortcut on your desktop. So, the next time you need to practice self-hypnosis with that spinning NVIDIA logo, you could just do so without a single second wasted.
Step 2.2: Another shortcut for the future [Optional]
Open the NVIDIA Control Panel.
Click on “Desktop” at the top of the window. From the drop-down menu, check the “Add Desktop Context Menu” option, and if it is already checked, then uncheck and check it again:
Now, the next time you need to practice self-hypnosis with that spinning NVIDIA logo, you could just do so without a single second wasted.
