  Is there any way to force settings (like use of dedicated GPU versus
integrated GPU) from application code via an API?

  Basically, we're trying to avoid having to teach the untrained user how
to mess with those settings when we know the preferred settings for the

  Interested in NVidia and optionally AMD, Windows primarily but
cross-platform APIs are welcomed.

  I'm digging into this:

  to see if it does what I want, but welcome input from others.
