You might already have the GeForce Experience because it is usually installed with your initial Nvidia GPU drivers downloads.

So let us help you utilize this powerful software and even guide you through the installation if you don’t already have it.
Downloading GeForce Experience
If your Nvidia graphics driver did not include the GeForce Experience, you could manually download it.
It’s very simple to do so – all you need to do is go to the official Nivida GeForce Experience page and click the Download button.
Next, once the download is complete, you have to run the GeForceExperience.exe file, and it will begin installing.
When the software program has completed installation, you can log in with your existing account or create a new Nvidia account.
Once that’s done, you will see a dialogue box that prompts you to take a tour of the program.
If you are new to GeForce Experience, you should take the tour to familiarize yourself with the features of the software.
Opening GeForce Experience
Using GeForce Experience, you can do a long list of things to improve your PC’s performance and make the most out of your gameplay. One of the best features is game optimization, which means you can optimize your gameplay with a simple click of a button. You will be able to enjoy excellent video quality and peak performance in a good balance without overloading your PC.
If you want to use GeForce Experience while gaming to record it, you can do so very easily without pausing. All you have to do is press Alt+Z, the program’s hotkey, and you will see a GeForce Experience overlay pop up on your screen.
You can use Instant Replay, save clips, Nvidia ShadowPlay and more to save replays and record your game. You can personalize instant replay to record a certain amount of footage, quality, resolution, bitrate and framerate.

Update Your Drivers
If you already have the program but have trouble opening GeForce Experience, you should make sure that your drivers are up to date. You can do this manually or have a driver support tool or manager assist you in installing updates.
Another common cause of GeForce not opening or working upon installing it is the Anti-Virus software you use. Even though Anti-Virus is meant to protect your PC, it can misdiagnose GeForce Experience due to its .exe file. All you have to do is disable your anti-virus software and relaunch GeForce Experience to counter this issue. If it does not help, uninstall and reinstall the software or update your drivers
