Intel Graphics Query

On my old ever faithful NUC5i5RYH when I right clicked on the Windows desktop one of the items in the menu was Display Settings, which took me to the Windows bit. Also in the same menu appeared Graphics Options, which took me to the Intel bit. So far so good.

 

On my new NUC8i7BEH I have the former but the latter does not appear. I have checked in Device Manager to see that the Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 is shown in the Display Adaptor and the Intel DSA tells me I am using the latest driver. I have updated the BIOS to 0071 using the Windows Express method (thank you, Intel, for bringing that back) so my question is, why do I now not have the option to fiddle with the graphics and display settings using the Intel bit?

 

Thank you.

  1. I got installed the Intel Graphics Command Center together with DCH Graphics Driver installation. However if you didn't you may download it from the Microsoft Store: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/intel-graphics-command-center/9plfnlnt3g5g?activetab=pivot:overvie...
  2. There is also the Intel Graphics Control Panel for download (it may co-exists with Intel GCC): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/intel-graphics-control-panel/9ndlclmmtmrc?activetab=pivot:overview...
  3. Here you can read some FAQs about this subject: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000032768/graphics-drivers.html
  4. What is the version of your Windows?

  1. Please check on the Task Bar R.H side, under "Show hidden icons". If you see there Intel(R) Graphics Command Center. If yes right click with mouse, to open it. Same item you should see in the Start Menu, under "I". You may see there also in addition to Intel(R) Graphics Command Center, the old Intel(R) Graphics Control Center.
  2. If you don't see those items in your NUC, please download and install the latest DCH Graphics Driver: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28816/Intel-Graphics-Windows-10-DCH-Drivers?product=80939
  3. If during installation of this DCH driver, you will see message telling that this driver is not suitable to your system, please uninstall currently installed Display Adapter (from Display Manager). Once you see the Microsoft Basic Graphic Adapter, start again the installation of DCH driver (downloaded as instructed in para. 2 above).

Thank you, Leon, for your response.

 

Your item 1 drew a blank but I did successfully install the driver from your link without needing to do anything from item 3. The new driver is confirmed in the Device Manager.

 

However, when I right click in the desktop I again do not see the Intel Graphics option and in the Start Menu under Intel I still only have the DSA and Intel(R) PROSet Adapter Configuration Utility listed.

The Intel Graphics Control Center is replaced by Intel Graphics Command Center in the Start Menu (see the attached image)

Again, thank you for your reply. The item you show in the image does not appear in my Start Menu. Can it be downloaded? Or is it somewhere on my system waiting to be enabled?

 

Looking forward to your reply.
