Thanks for joining the graphics community.
I am sorry to hear that have had issues with Intel graphics control panel.
This problem appears to be a driver corruption. You may try to remove and reinstall any Intel(R) Graphics Driver from control panel and then reinstall the driver
Please filter by operating system version and try to install the driver when it finishes downloading, to verify that your system will accept it.

I had this same problem with a Dell laptop running Windows 8.1 and it was driving me crazy!
I think at some point, I had the laptop connected to a TV via HDMI, and opened the Intel Graphics control panel on that screen. After I disconnected from that TV, the Intel Graphics Control Panel would open up, but be completely invisible and inaccessible.
Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help... NOTHING worked.
I DID manage to get it back, however, and I hope this works for someone else here...
Find the shortcut you're using to open the Intel Graphics Control Panel... Right-click on it and choose "Open file location." That will take you to the shortcut file, or possibly the Control Panel .exe file itself. If you get to the file itself, stop here and skip to the next step. If all you see is the shortcut, right-click again and choose "Open file location" a second time. You should now be in a folder something like:
And you should see that a file called: GfxUIEx.exe is highlighted. That's the control panel you're trying to open. On my laptop, I also saw a file right next to it called Gfxv2_0.exe. Just out of curiosity, I double-clicked that file, and magically, the Intel Graphics Control Panel finally showed up again!!!
I was also connected to a different TV via HDMI at the time that it fixed my problem, but I can't tell if that had anything to do with it.
Hope this solves some people's frustration with this!
