How to remove the lock icon near certain programs on AMD Switchable Graphics in my laptop?

Question asked by helmy on Oct 17, 2015



I have a laptop with both intel's integrated gpu and AMD R5 M230 gpu.

Operating system is Windows 10 64 bit.

I know that when I set software to work on "High performance" on the Switchable Graphics in Catalyst Control Center, it means that these softwares would work with the AMD gpu rather than intel's.

However, for certain softwares, such as all the browsers for example (Chrome, Explorer, Edge), there is a lock icon next to them and they are locked on Power saving, thus performing very poorly with intel's gpu when I need more power for some demanding softwares.


How can I remove the lock icon and make them work with my AMD Radeon R5 M230 gpu?
