    Unfortunately, latest Windows 10 update intentionally removes option for manually choosing GPU processor to run with application. It was context menu that appeared, when right clicked on program icon. Now it is gone. It was handy to test intel gpu as it has ogl 4.5 and vulkan 1.2 support nowadays.

    Now, the only option is to manually open Nvidia Panel, switch to tab, manually add program, and change option to run with nvidia. Switching back to intel is the same process.

    Can anybody know a way to make it faster (reg edit maybe?) OR is that possible to make a tool for fast switch between gpu processors?

    Does this mean that the ability to change GPU for apps will be removed from the Nvidia Control Panel? If the Nvidia GPU is set for an app the Windows Settings, I would still need to add it to the Nvidia Control Panel to change settings for it, like the Framerate limiter or Anisotropic Filtering, right?

    Hello Ivanosky,
    The ability is still there. No change in nvidia control Panel.

    Laptop users had ability to manually choose GPU at every run.
    It was like this:

    Yes, the ability is still there. But the message that shows on the Manage 3D Settings screen sounds like if choosing the GPU through the Windows Settings is now the preferred method and that the ability to change it through the Nvidia Control Panel might be removed.

    Which is why I was asking this to Astyanax, since he seems to have some insider knowledge from his replies in other threads.

    the windows settings tends to have a better shot of making it stick.

    So they removed a useful shortcut to replace it with a longer shitty process...
    There must be a way to automate this and add shortcuts to context menu ?! Since it's now handled by default by Windows, there must be some reg trick that can be enable on the fly and thus added to context menu I hope...

    I use emulators. Even choosing manually in Nvidia panel an internal gpu and in emulation program, still dedicated gpu is used. Can anybody with nvidia optimus can confirm problems?
