If you have two GPUs in your system you have to make sure that Enscape uses the dedicated NVIDIA or AMD graphics card and not your onboard Intel integrated GPU.
Where two dedicated GPU’s are installed using SLi, Enscape should still function, although only one of the GPU’s will be utilized by Enscape at the present time.
NOTE: Where multiple display monitors are being used, make sure that the main display unit is connected to the GPU’s display port, and not to a display port from the motherboard.

Your system will now automatically use the second GPU in your system. This solution does work for desktop and mobile machines. However, if you are using a notebook, you probably want to follow the instructions above, because disabling your Intel HD graphics card can increase your power consumption and therefore reduce your battery time.
Check that your main display is plugged in to the port of the GPU and then reboot the machine. You should then find that the missing options will become available in the GPU’s Control Panel.
