How To Manage Graphics Performance Per App in Windows 10

Windows 10 is adding a new panel that lets you set graphics performance per app. This new feature is currently only available on Windows 10 version 1803.  Windows 10 doesn’t let you choose between the integrated graphics and the dedicated GPU. Rather, it helps you set preferences on performance defaults for apps.  As per Microsoft, this new settings panel is a substitute for this very feature in your GPU’s control panel. You can choose to use it or stick to the control panel for your graphics card.

Configure Graphics Performance Per App

1. Press Windows + I keys to open Settings app.

2. Click on System.

3. From Display tab click on Graphics settings link.

4. Select for which type of app, Universal App or Classic app, would you want to manage graphics performance. All the compatible apps appear in the list. The list appears to populate itself based on the app type that you select. Select an app, and click the Add button. Once the app appears in the list, click it, and click the Options button.

5. The Options button will reveal three graphics performance preference options: system default, power saving and high performance. The System Default option enables the operating system to decide on what is best for the computer. The Power Saving option will definitely give higher priority to efficient energy consumption and thus will hand over the function to the on-board GPU. The High Performance preference should let the app use the dedicated GPU.
