    Windows 10 with NVIDIA processor:

    The "Change default graphics processor" context menu item should change the default graphics processor but it does not.

    Where is 'run with graphics processor' context menu in Start menu?

    I just upgraded from Windows 7 and was used to the possibility of choosing which graphics processor I use to launch programs from the Start menu. This option does not appear with the latest NVidia drivers, all I get are five options, two of which are about
    pinning.

    Right now the only workaround is to Open file location and have the context menu option to run with either graphics card/chip from the File Explorer, which is somewhat annoying. I know NVidia Control Panel allows me to set the default graphics processor,
    which is an even bigger annoyance when testing how well an application runs on the Intel chip and comparing it to the Nvidia card.

    Running Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

    Change Context Menu Default

    I am running Windows 10 and have a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device connected to my network. From the file explorer when I select Network, the device icon shows up in the Storage category, other categories are Computer, Media Devices, Printers,
    and Scanners.



    If I right-click the NAS device icon, I get a context menu where I can select Open to actually open the device and browse the device’s shared folders. On the list of context menu options, “View device webpage” is bold (the default double-click option
    for the device).



    I want to the context menu to default (bold) the “Open” option instead of “View device webpage”, so when I double-click the device icon, I open it and view the shared folders, I don’t want the double-click default to view the device’s webpage.



    Right now the only way I can “open” the device to view its shared folders is to right-click the device icon and select Open from the context menu. How can I make this change?
