Hello! So I am currently using a laptop with 2 processor graphics in use, one is an Intel Core I5-8250 1.60GHz and the other one is a Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 , and the problem i have is that my computer is currently using my Intel Graphics 620 instead of the I5-8250. This is a big problem because altough i have a good graphics card the fact that my computer uses the worse of the 2 make any game i play laggy. How can i switch between the 2 so that my computer will use the I5-8250 ?

Intel Core I5-8250 1.60GHz is the CPU in your laptop. Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620  indicates graphics processing circuitry integrated into the CPU. So, this all one CPU. If you have in your laptop also additional Graphics Adapter (like NVIDIA or AMD), enter your BIOS settings and disable the Integrated Graphics Logic, leaving the additional Graphics Adapter enabled.
