- Open the Installed Apps page within the Settings app.

How to Rollback/Downgrade NVIDIA Drivers
If you have not removed the old NVIDIA drivers manually and want to downgrade or roll back to the older version of the driver, you can easily do it using the Device Manager. Just follow the steps below to rollback NVIDIA drivers:
- Press the Windows Key + R shortcut keys to open the Run Command box.
- Type in “devmgmt.msc” and press Enter to open the Device Manager.
- Right-click the NVIDIA driver by expanding Display Adapters and click Properties from the context menu.
- Under the “Driver” tab, click the “Roll Back Driver” button.
Please note that if there is no old driver available in the Windows cache, the “Roll Back Driver” button will be greyed out. Also, Windows only stores one previous version of a driver, so you can only roll back to the one installed before the latest update.
Kepler driver updates do not include new features or improvements. However, they include security updates only, which protect your devices against modern threats and attacks. Therefore, if you are running one of the aforementioned GPU hardware, it is strongly advised that you update to the latest Kepler driver available.
