General Solution for Intel HD (Desktop + Mobile)

If the solutions above do not work for you, or you are working on a desktop machine, please follow these instructions to disable the Intel graphics card via the Windows Device Manager:

WARNING: On some systems, the following steps may be harmful and can only be reverted via Windows Safe-Mode.

  1. Pressing Windows + S will open the native Windows search function, perform a search for ‘Device Manager’
  2. Expand the Display adapters from the list displayed in the Device Manager.
  3. If you see an ‘Intel HD Graphics’ card listed, right click on it and choose Disable from the men

Windows Device Manager

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.
