Uh, you should be able to set that in your operating system. Cura will just use whatever the OS tells it to use.

 Do you have the steps on that it would be really helpful

    @nallath - Would setting Preferences / Configure Cura / General / Viewport Behavior / "Force Layer View Compatibility Mode" be of any help?

    My laptop doesn't support OpenGL 4.1.  In the "Line Type" box it always tells me I'm in Compatibility Mode.  (I use AHoeben's GUI plugin so it might in a different location in the stock GUI.)

    Well, if it cna't run opengl 4.1 it automatically sets it to be in compatibility mode. The preference item just enables you to force the behavior.

    I've never had to do that, so i dont know of a set of instructions that would work. So i would just google something and give that to you.

    @Darksiderxxz It has been a while, but I seem to recall that NVidia had a utilities app that would be installed with their video card.  In that app along with setting the screen resolution you could choose which installed programs would use the video card, and which would use the on-board GPU.
