The Intel Video can be downloaded by OSDDrivers using the following command

If I want to skip the GridView selection, I can just use the SkipGridView parameter

Get-DownOSDDriver -WorkspacePath D:\OSDDrivers -OSDGroup IntelDisplay -OSVersion 10.0 -OSArch x64 -SkipGridView

Which will download all the Windows 10 Drivers I need automatically

Compress Intel Display Drivers

OSDDrivers includes the ability to convert these expanded Zip files to Highly compressed CAB files by adding the Pack parameter

Get-DownOSDDriver -WorkspacePath D:\OSDDrivers -OSDGroup IntelDisplay -OSVersion 10.0 -OSArch x64 -SkipGridView -Pack
