How to change my primary graphics card in Radeon Adrenalin Software 2021

I have an Acer Asprire 3 a315-42g-r6fz notebook, which has the following configuration:

GPU: Radeon 540x 2GB GDDR5
APU: Ryzen 5 3500u with Vega 8
RAM: 16BG DDR4 2666Mhz

The problem my notebook is presenting is that in both radeon software and windows my main video card is Vega 8, I wanted to use obviously my dedicated video card Radeon 540x, to this way get more performance.AMD Radeon Software AdrenalinAMD Radeon Software AdrenalinWindows Task ManagerWindows Task Manager

The graphics selection is handled by Microsoft. Go to your computer 'Dislay' option and scroll down to graphics.

It's the only way it works. Try again...you added the .exe file?

Yes, but is it normal for it to stay this way in the radeon adrenalin software?

the integrated video card is as primary in the amd redeon software, and the dedicated video card is as secondary.

Yes  it is normal....you can't change which graphics is the discrete or vice-versa. You can only assign the graphics like I showed you.
