The switchable graphics selection is now controlled by Microsoft....under computer Display options..Graphics.

By default you can not choose the discrete graphics as the primary graphics. The AMD high performance graphics controls 3-D applications...not 2-D surf the web usage. The only way that can be done is through the bios...if your laptop has the option. The idea is to change the setting in the bios from switchable/dynamic graphics to fixed/static graphics. This disables the integrated (Intel) graphics.

Also under your Windows Power Profiles using a high performance profile can help push things onto the discrete graphics. 

Many laptops have custom locked power profiles but will have a slider. Moving that slider all the way to a direction that favors performance may also help push apps onto the discrete graphics.
