I'm trying to choose a specific GPU for a specific application. NVidia control panel should have "Prefered GPU for this application" but it does not. Note that I am on a desktop with 2 Nvidia GPUs and I want to be able to decide at will which application uses which GPU. The option is not in Nvidia control panel. Any ideas??

Usually, you choose them in the application if the app supports it

There is no option in the application. So I dont know what to do
Give this a try. From microsoft forum.
Windows 10 version 1803 added the Graphics settings that can modify which graphics card is to be used for each app.

  1. Click the Start button, type Graphics settings and then hit Enter.
  2. Choose between Classic app or Universal app (Windows Store Apps).
  3. Select desired app and then click Add.
  4. Select the app from the list and then click Options.
  5. Set the graphics preference for the app and then click Save to complete.
