To confirm that the latest NVIDIA driver has been installed on your device, head to the Programs and Features page in the Control Panel by typing in “appwiz.cpl” in the Run Command box, and then look for the NVIDIA Graphics Driver. You should be able to see the driver version next to it.

How to Uninstall NVIDIA Drivers

If for some reason you wish to uninstall the graphics driver, here is how to do so:

  1. Open the Installed Apps page within the Settings app.
  2. Select NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers from the list of programs.

  2. Right-click the NVIDIA driver by expanding Display Adapters and click Properties from the context menu.
  3. 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.
