Damn I really hate how difficult it is to tell your current Driver Version, why the hell doesn't it just say, 531.26 some where?
At least I can't find it, mine are currently dated 2/2/23 and called version 31.0.15.2849. Wtf
Could you assholes over at nvidia make damn sense, please?
How hard could it be to use the same damn numbers for versions, you issue on your releases? Punch

I don't even use Container, disable it in Services, first thing after install.
It seems to cause crashes or not do a damn thing to prevent crashes.
It works much better at least for me, with just drivers.
But have it set to Manual in Services in case I need their Display Panel.

You are on driver version 528.49

The last five digits have been the driver version number for many years with Nvidia.

Never knew that about Nvidia's numbering system, good to know. Thanks
