By improving the overall performance of the graphics infrastructure, Intel Graphics Control Panel has a key role to play. However, when you download the Intel Graphics Control Panel from the Microsoft Store and launch it from its location, the app may not start. If you are having this problem, this article may help.
Intel Graphics Control Panel does not open
Before we move on to the solution, let’s see why this error occurs in the first place. It is believed that the device manufacturer sometimes pushes and installs the DC drivers through the Windows Update service. Therefore, the DC driver overwrites any previously installed DCH driver. Note that the Intel Graphics Control Panel application downloaded from the Microsoft Store is still not removed.
This leads to two instances of the Intel Graphics Control Panel trying to run on the system simultaneously, causing neither of them to open. Do the following and see if it helps:
- Click on Start.
- Go to settings.
- Choose Apps & Features.
- Locate the Intel Graphics Control Panel and Intel Graphics Driver.
- Uninstall both.
- Restart the PC.
- Go to Device Manager.
- Click Display Adapters.
- Right click on the Intel HD graphics card and click Update Driver.

Alternatively, when the same error is followed by a message that says GfxUI.exe is missing, you can follow another procedure to resolve the problem.
Right click on the Intel Graphics Control Panel shortcut and choose ‘Open file location. ‘ When directed to a new page, locate the shortcut file, right-click it again, and choose the “Open file location ‘ option once again. You should be directed to a new folder like:
C: WINDOWS system32
Here you should find a file called GfxUIEx.exe highlighted. This is the control panel you are trying to open. Simply double click on the file in the Intel Graphics Control Panel in Windows 10.
This should fix the problem permanently.
