But how, NVIDIA has the best drivers in the world! Also, they needed like a decade to bring back tray icon. Which is just a shortcut that we already have on a desktop right click menu. Yay. If it at least contained quick controls for FXAA, FSAA and AF like we had back in the days, so you can enable it without opening the sluggish cumbersome main NV Control Panel. Wishful thinking I guess...

At long frigging last. Removing it was dumb beyond belief and I really missed it.

Yep, super frustrating having to go find the launcher instead of just using the tray.

I seriously hope this fixes some shit like losing mouse control in, Hulu, Microsoft store and Go90....

This shit is seriously pissing me off... If it's not fixed now or within the next month I'm going back to AMD... Way to fucking frustrating to be worth dealing with.

Oh without the icon all you have to do is right click and there it is.... I too prefer it be in the tray icon section though

Don't bother. They are both rubbish.

I have equally annoying problems with my Vega 64 as I have with my 1080 Ti.

AMD drivers are not much better. We've got both in the house, and a bad sneeze or a hung Steam or web browser will cause AMD drivers to crash. And they never fully recover to what they were, requiring another reinstall.

388.31 were good for me but I guess it's time to pray the mandatory update doesn't screw anything.

Try the Windows Update tool. (Mussels has in his signature). It's how I hide anything I don't want.
