  1. Cannot Force an App to Use Integrated GPU on My Laptop


    Hi,There is an app on my computer that does not run on the dedicated GPU. Previously I used to right-click on the .exe file and select run with graphics processor > integrated graphics.That option is no longer available. However, I could go to Windows' graphics setting and set the app to use integrated GPU. It was working fine until the last update.After the last update, the app keeps on running with the dedicated GPU. Even changing the setting on Nvidia control panel to force the app to run using integrated GPU is not working.Please let me know how to resolve this issue.

    :)
     

  2. How can I force my dedicated GPU to handle all applications or disable my integrated GPU?

    Is there a way to force a program to use a secondary GPU?

    Hi Zeond1987,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    Are you getting any error message?

    If you have a multi-GPU system running Windows 10, you can now manually specify the preferred graphics processor an app should use for performance or to improve battery life.

    In order to force an app to use a discrete GPU instead of the integrated one, or vice versa to provide better system performance or battery life, I suggest you to follow the below steps.

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the System icon. Click on System.

    2. Click on Display on the left side

    3. Under “Multiple displays,” click the Advanced graphics settings link.

    4. Select the kind of app you want to configured using the drop-down menu:

    Classic app — these are your traditional Win32 desktop programs.

    Universal app — these are those app available through the Microsoft Store.

    5. If you select Classic app, you’ll need to click the Browse button to locate the “.exe” file to add the app. Otherwise, if you select the Universal app option, you’ll see a second drop-down menu to select the app.

    6. Select the app you added from the list.

    7. Click the Options button

    8. Set the graphics preference you want to use:

    System default — this is always the default setting, and Windows 10 decide which GPU to use automatically.

    Power saving — runs the application on the GPU that uses the least power, which most of the time is your integrated graphics processor.

    High performance — runs the application on the most capable GPU, which is most of the time an external or discrete graphics processor.

    9. Click the Save button.

    I also recommend you to update the GTX 1080 drivers from the manufacturer website, and
    Check if that work.

    Hope it helps,

    Cannot Force an App to Use Integrated GPU on My Laptop

    Windows 10 Won't use NVIDIA GPU, Uses Integrated Graphics Instead! (LAPTOP)

    I have a similar (same) problem with my ASUS laptop.

    My Laptop: ASUS F550L laptop

    SPECS:

    Windows: Windows 10

    Processor: Intel Core i7-4500MQ CPU @ 1.8GHz

    RAM: 8 GB

    System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M

    Integrated GPU: ?

    DirectX Version: ?

    I have tried the steps listed above but they did not resolve the problem.

    I have attempted to download an updated driver but my driver was reported as 'up to date'.

    What do I do now?
