  • A new NVIDIA icon is created in the system tray each time a user switch takes place in Windows.

Issues not caused by NVIDIA drivers

  • [Windows 10 Fall Creators Update][HDTV]: 12 bpc is automatically applied even on
    HDTVs that support only 8 bpc, resulting in a scrambled display. [2007663]
    To work around, open the NVIDIA Control Panel -> Change Resolution page, select “Use NVIDIA color settings,” then set the Output color depth to 8 bpc.
  • Some games and applications are designed to run at a fixed frame rate, and consequently do not take advantage of NVIDIA G-Sync. To prevent issues, G-Sync may be disabled for those applications.
