If you only use if for games with the power adapter connected, then you have no need to automatically switch to the power saving GPU.

 

Right-click an empty place on the desktop and select configure switchable graphics.

 

Take the tick mark out of the box that says "Automatically select power-saving GPU when on battery".

 

Select the High Performance GPU and then click on apply at the bottom right side of the window.

 

Now you should see the High Performance GPU as the current graphics processing unit  in the Switchable Graphics Status.

Re: how to disable switchable graphics

But what about, when the app or game, constantly switches to ''not assigned'' in CCC ???
