Right click desktop > click personalise > click display settings > click advanced settigns > click properties next to the adapter graphic > click driver >Driver version will be displayed there.

However you are better using the drivers direct from nvidia as MS supply cut down drivers.

Most of the time the Microsoft drivers do not have OpenGL support.

Sorry I should have been a little clearer. I wanted to know the version of what MS was offering before I downloaded it.

I would say never take video drivers from WU , always go to the source, in this case Nvidia

Yes, that's such a pain in the arse! What good are NVIDIA drivers from MS if they don't allow you to change any of the settings?! I had to download the drivers direct from NVIDIA just to force vertical sync on!

As far as I know you have to install them to see the version. But like I said earlier, the MS drivers will not support OpenGL.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
