Intel Graphics Command Center vs Intel Graphics Control Panel: missing feature

My 'Travel Kit' is basically a Compute Stick STK2m3W64CC

I plug on the hotel's HDTV.

 

Usually, I have to use 'Intel Graphics Control Panel' to resize and adjust the Desktop, for -- in most HDTVs -- the computer's desktop overflows the TV's display.

 

During a new update, I was directed to use this new 'Intel Graphics Command Center' and uninstall 'Intel Graphics Control Panel'.

 

But this 'custom resize' function is unavailable on the new 'Intel Graphics Command Center'. Bummer

 

And so, I cannot discard the former and functioning IGCP.

You can have installed the IGCC and IGCP concurrently. Download and install IGCP from Microsoft Store. You will find in Start menu under letter "I"

Tks, Leon,

 

That's my current status: I do have them both (I played safe and didn't uninstall IGCP 😉 ). But I have to force IGCP to run, for IGCC shows up, asking to uninstall IGCP.

 

My reasoning was IGCC would override as an updated IGCP, what's the point of this new App? I do hope this new IGCC add this feature in the future, for running two concurrent apps is not a good design 😋

Hi Saverin,

The IGCP was removed from Graphics Driver package - this was Microsoft request, starting with the DCH versions. For the same reason it was replaced by the IGCC. I did uninstalled the old version of IGCP and installed the version form Microsoft Store (link in my post above). When i run this version of IGCP (from Microsoft), or IGCC I have no request to uninstall the IGCP. I don't know what function will be included in IGCC, however, you may still use IGCP. You may also address your question to the Intel Graphics Command Center Feedback .

Savarin,

 

Open the Intel Graphics Command Center and click on the Display option in the left-hand menu. Change the Scale parameter from its default of Maintain Aspect Ratio to instead Custom. This should open a Custom Scaling dialog that will let you resize and adjust the desktop as you wished.

 

Hope this helps,

Hi Scott,

 

Nope (check my answer at GCC General Feedback the last one, click 'More Answers'):

 

Of course, I checked 'Scale' before posting. But my options are only: Centered, Stretched and Maintain Aspect Ratio... 😕 no Custom

 

BTW, not only this happens on the reported Compute Stick STK2m3W64CC, but also on Intel® NUC Kit NUC8i7HNK, I'm using now. Only those three options. No Custom.

First of all, on the NUC8i7HNK and NUC8i7HVK, the Intel HD Graphics engine is completely disconnected. The AMD Graphics engine is in charge of the connectors, so you have to use the AMD control panel for any adjustments you need to make.

 

Secondly, I have both STK2m3W64CC and STK2mV64CC (with Windows 10 Pro 1909 installed) and, on both, Intel Graphics Command Center is offering the Custom Scaling capability. I think (a guess only) that the capabilities of the connected TV/Monitor decide whether this option will be offered.

Hi Scott,

 

I'm back home, the Compute Stick STK2m3W64CC is in the bag, for I use it for traveling, when I discovered this issue; I do need and always used the 'Custom Scaling' feature connecting to various HDTVs.

 

Fortunately, I did not uninstall GCP and was able to resize the desktop, as usual. Something GCC was unable to do (no Custom option), when connected to the same hotel TV.

 

Just out of curiosity, I checked how GCC worked on the NUC8i7HNK for it is my main workstation (and I was able to prtSc the same behavior); but I know about AMD's. And no need for resizing here.
