How to set up a program on your NVIDIA graphics card

Having a video card is practically a requirement for anyone who wants or needs to perform heavier tasks on a computer, whether it be for using editing software or simply for playing next generation games. The biggest problem is that even with a video card in your PC, you may still have problems with slow or crash when trying to run certain programs. This happens when the specific program is not configured to work at high performance with the graphics card. To learn how to do this, just check out our detailed tutorial below.

Setting up your video card

First of all, it is important to remember that this process only shows how to configure software on NVIDIA cards and does not necessarily apply to other types. It is also possible that some steps may be different if your card is slightly older or newer than the one used in our example.

To get started, right-click anywhere on the desktop and click the "NVIDIA Control Panel" option to continue.

This will take you to a new window with the main settings of your graphics card. At the top left of the screen, choose the "Manage 3D Settings" option.

Now click on "Program Settings."

This is where we can configure each software individually. Click the button below "Select programs to select" and choose the software or game you want.

With the program selected, click on the "Select this program's graphics processor" option below. Click this option to see the alternatives.

Natively, it can be either “Integrated Graphics” or “Global Configuration”, but we must select “High Performance NVIDIA Processor” for the software to make the best use of your card.

Then click the apply button on the bottom right side of the screen.

With this, the program will be properly configured to work at high performance with your graphics card. This way you will no longer have problems with performance, but you will have to do the same process with most software you have.
