I have the P3D 777 which requires to be run as administrator I also have a laptop that has two graphic cards I have set up P3D to run as administrator but when I run the program it defaults to the intel integrated graphics card but I want it to run on the nvidia GForce graphics card the problem is if I right click on the P3D icon and select the nvidia graphics card it loads without administrator and the program does not run properly and the problem is I don’t seem to have the nvidia control panel on my computer to make any changes to the graphics card any ideas please

If you go to Options->Graphics->Display and under Full Screen Settings you should be able to select the card you want to use in the "Display:" drop-down.

Let us know how it goes.
