    Please delete this, someone might take you seriously and that would be horrible.

    Tbh I too hate that design he called an abomination. I think its because I got so used to using default v3 skin big edition.

    I too also couldn't make a skin for the app as I don't have the skills to do so, but it doesn't mean I can't have an opinion based on my own tastes weather a skin looks bad or not.

    1,5 years later, I still think the looks of the Nvidia control panel is perfectly fine. It's simple and clean, the main problem is still its speed.

    I used AMD's control panel back in summer and I found it annoying. Annyoing background colors, annoying tabs to have to click through to get where you want.

    That's not surprising, those who have skills to create something also understand an amount of work involved in it. And easily see the difference between "having opinion" and insulting work done by other person.

    I "have the skills" to play and record music. Lots of people may think it sucks, but I don't get all butt hurt over it and take it as an "insult". I actually like to hear about it, so I can improve or at least know what they didn't like about it.

    That is an eyesore, buries what you're looking for and absolutely trash.

    You're a UX designer aren't you?

    Only they would think thats "Good"

    Or hiding things behind more and more menus and side menus.


    In other news, on newer drivers in Windows 7 NVCP (Nvdisplacontainer.exe or whatever) actually breaks Aero support. You have to disable the displaycontainer service for it to work lol.

    not seeing that at all, unless something broke with recent cumulative updates.

    ROFL, I was guessing that those who commented my post were savvy enough to notice it was a matter of screen resizing.

    No, we were savvy enough to reject the horrible settings ui that should be deleted and returned back being a proper control panel.

    We are clearly seeing different things here. I see titles and subtitles, nothing more, nothing less.
    Which gives me a pretty good idea of what to expect when I open the next window.
    Something like newspaper articles, if you know what I mean.
    Title + subtitle = summary of the article.
    The rest is personal preferences, which makes it pointless to carry the discussion any further.

    Which on Windows 10 is two clicks away, unless you are working on something you deem superior.
    Have a good weekend.

    I'd have a better one if you'd stop neglecting the fact that a number of the control panel applets no longer exist.

    I see all of you are passionate and not lazy people (ready to exchange with opinions in rounds forever).
    I see many benefits in such threads, like:
    - exploring the capacity of forum`s servers;
    - testing your own and your opponents` tolerance.

    I don't really have an issue with the looks really. It's ugly, but i know where everything is, i change my settings, and never look at it again.

    I would like it to be faster though, and therefore need to look at it even less.

    There's got to be a way to speed up changing settings. If it's somehow unsafe, then allow me to change settings quickly, but que up the changes to happen as slow as it needs to be without me waiting.

    I liked the Detonator control panel. Then ATI released their "Catalyst Control Center" b.s. and for some strange reason, Nvidia thought it would be smart to add a bunch of b.s. into their driver as well, and rename it to Forceware, which was formerly the title of a demo CD.
