    Are you running Cura on a computer that has multiple GPUs? Eg an integrated intel GPU and the nVidia GPU? In that case it could be that (in Windows 11), Cura is running on the integrated GPU. Try if you can force Cura to open on the dedicated NVidia GPU instead.

    What did you do or try?

    I don't have Windows 11 installed, so I can't check, but this should do it:

    Sorry, I really can't help you if all the feedback I get from a suggestion is "that did not work".

     

    What did not work? Did you not find the dialogs, or were their contents different? Did you not find Ultimaker Cura in the list of applications? Or did you successfully perform all the steps to set the "Graphics preference" of Ultimaker Cura to "High Performance", but it did not change the behavior inside Cura? Did you restart Cura and/or your computer after setting the preference?

     

    See, there are a lot of details you could be giving to help us help you.  I'm going to stop guessing, until I get more details.

    Sorry my work interrupted my free time. 
    I tried to force windows into using my GPU for Cura but that did not work. 
    Cura is now in High Performance mode but nothing changed.

    Update:
    I checked that OpenGL is up to date and the version I have is 4.6, so that can not be the issue there.

    I assume that Cura is not compatible with W11 and is not seeing that i got OpenGL 4.6.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
