My setup is a 2017 hp spectre + omen accelerator + gtx 1070

In the nvidia control panel, i have the global settings put on integrated graphics but most of my games are configured to using the high performance nvidia processor

But according to my gpu activity, even the programs that are supposed to run on integrated graphics are using the gpu to run it.

for example spotify, chrome, and a lot of other programs are running on integated graphics yet the gpu is used to run it??

How do i fix this issue? I think it's having a big performance hit on my gpu especially when i run my games

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

The settings are for 3D. Are there settings for 2D?

Where do you find 2d settings?

I dunno. Maybe there aren't any. I was just looking at your screen shots and noticed they all say "3D settings".
