In some conditions maybe you cannot install Intel graphics drivers even if your computer having Intel chips because your computer manufacturer wants you to install drivers from their website, not directly from Intel.

First, you’ll need to download the graphics drivers from here https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28816/Intel-Graphics-Windows-10-DCH-Drivers?v=t Download the .zip version of the package instead of the .exe version from Intel’s website.

Extract the downloaded zip file to a folder on your system. You can do this just by right-clicking the zip file and selecting “Extract All”, or with any file extraction utility.

Now you have to turn on an option named file name extensions in windows explorer.

Windows will install the driver, once you get the successful message. I recommend restarting your PC to ensure the driver is completely installed.

NOW YOU CAN EASILY INSTALL DRIVERS FROM INTEL.

Don’t worry you have to do this process only once for installing standard Intel Drivers, you can download new drivers from the Intel website and install them directly on top of your current drivers just by running the standard .exe installer.
