How to Uninstall GeForce Experience Drivers?

For all its usefulness, the NVIDIA GeForce Experience Drivers is not for all users to enjoy. Everyone has their reasons for this, but it all comes down to the fact that the program has to be removed.

It is necessary to figure out how to do this, and most importantly – what is the risk of abandoning this program.

How to Uninstall GeForce Experience Drivers?

It’s worth talking right away about what will happen if you uninstall GeForce Experience. The list of factors that should be taken into account when deleting can hardly be called significant:

Main Function

NVIDIA GeForce Experience Drivers

The main function of the program is to download and update drivers for the user’s video card. Without GF Experience, you will have to do it yourself, regularly visiting the Official GeForce Drivers NVIDIA

Considering that many new games are accompanied by the release of appropriate drivers, without which brakes and poor performance can spoil the entertainment process, this can be a severe problem.

The least loss is the rejection of the function of adjusting the graphic parameters of computer games. The system automatically adapts all games to the characteristics of this computer to achieve either 60 fps performance, or simply the maximum possible. 

Without this, users will have to configure everything manually. Many consider this function to be ineffective as the system degrades the picture quality altogether and not in an intelligent way.

Users will opt out of NVIDIA Shadow play and NVIDIA SHIELD services. The first provides a special panel for working with games – recording, performance overlay, and so on. The second makes it possible to broadcast the gameplay to other devices that support this function.

Also in GeForce Experience, you can find out news about promotions, company news, various developments, and so on. Without this, you will have to go to the official NVIDIA website for such information.

As a result, if you are satisfied with the refusal of the above possibilities, you can proceed to uninstall the program.
