AMD Radeon R7 M260 on Fujitsu LB A555/G I5 /4GB DDR3/DVD SM/SSD 256GB not working - why?

All browsers (iexplorer and Firefox) and the Flash player as well as all media players (Windows media and VLC player) run on the onboard graphic module [Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500] and not on AMD Radeon graphic card. This cannot be changed in AMD Catalyst Control Center for "reasons of compatibility" What is the use of an additional AMD Radeon graphic card if it cannot process the videos I want to watch? With HD-quality the system's graphic module can't cope, so I want AMD Radeon to take over. Please give advice on what to do?

Maybe some of the info in Still... how to switch between Intel and AMD graphics?

You could also ask on Fujitsu support/forum ?

Also, your using old drivers ?

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3600c16dgtzn kit, Aorus gen4 1tb, Nitro+RX6900XT, RM850, Win.10 Pro., LC27G55T..

Many thanks for your answer, but all you suggest I have already done:

The drivers are all new: That is the newest AMD driver I can get:


Assigning Switchable Graphics Mode to an Application​,

as suggested by the link you gave me, explains the things I have been trying to do: With my AMD driver I get the AMD Catalyst Control Center as shown in the first sreen shot above, where you can see that switching is blocked / locked for browsers and media players due to reasons of compatability.

===>  How can that blocking/lock be rmoved? How can I switch media players and browsers to AMD Radeon?

VLC player is processed by the intel onboard graphics and NOT by AMD Radeon, As you can see in the full screen shot below:
