System Change Graphics Performance Preference for Apps in Windows 11


  • Staff
Graphics_banner.png

This tutorial will show you how to change the graphics performance preference for desktop and Microsoft Store apps for your account in Windows 11.

You can choose custom graphics performance settings you prefer for apps in Windows 11.

Graphics preference​
Description​
Let Windows decideAutomatically selects the Integrated GPU when running 2D apps and the Discrete GPU when running 3D apps. This is the default setting.
Power savingA request to run the application on the most power saving GPU available. Selects the integrated GPU, which provides lower performance but consumes less power.
High performanceA request to run the application on the most high performance GPU available. Selects the discrete GPU, which provides better performance but consumes more power.

This allows you to specify which GPU you prefer to use by default for specific Microsoft Store and Desktop apps. Preferences may provide better app performance or save battery life. Choices may not take effect until the next time the app launches.

Generally, the power saving GPU is the integrated GPU on a system, and the high performance GPU is the discrete GPU or external GPU. If you have both a discrete GPU and an external GPU on a system, the external GPU is considered the high performance GPU.

Apps are always allowed to have the ultimate choice of which GPU to use, so you may see additional apps that do not follow the preferences you set. In that case, look for a setting within the app itself to choose a preference.

Starting with Windows 11 build 25336, if you have 2 or more discrete graphics adapters with no integrated graphics, you can now choose which of the discrete graphics adapters is considered high-performance.

Reference:


Your graphics performance preference settings for apps are saved to the registry key below.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\UserGpuPreferences

At the top of this article, you said that this is controlled by a registry setting, but you didn't include instructions on how to do it.
Is there a registry edit to apply the following default to all apps for all users (unless overridden for a specific app):
On AC, maximize performance.
On DC, minimize power (prolong battery life).

And does this also work in Windows 10?

The instructions in this tutorial are Windows 11 specific. Otherwise, Windows 10 would have been included in the info at the top.

The registry settings are only added when you make a change to the graphics performance preference settings for a app. It's not something than can be easily manually added.

You can export and import the registry key though as a form of backup like below.


I'm not aware of a way to toggle these settings for AC vs DC.

I'm not aware of a way to toggle these settings for AC vs DC.
I found settings in POWERCFG for video quality. It's a bit cryptic because there don't appear to be any aliases for the CLSIDs, but the following should do the trick:
Batch:
for /f "skip=2 tokens=4*" %%i in ('powercfg /list') do IF "%%j" == "" (powercfg /d %%i) ELSE (
  powercfg /SETACVALUEINDEX %%i 9596fb26-9850-41fd-ac3e-f7c3c00afd4b 10778347-1370-4ee0-8bbd-33bdacaade49 1 & REM On AC, Video playback performance bias
  powercfg /SETDCVALUEINDEX %%i 9596fb26-9850-41fd-ac3e-f7c3c00afd4b 10778347-1370-4ee0-8bbd-33bdacaade49 0 & REM On DC, Video playback power-saving bias
  powercfg /SETACVALUEINDEX %%i 9596fb26-9850-41fd-ac3e-f7c3c00afd4b 34c7b99f-9a6d-4b3c-8dc7-b6693b78cef4 0 & REM On AC, Optimize for video quality

)

These settings are available in Windows 10 too.

I don't believe Video Playback settings will be the same as the graphics performance preference for apps settings. It's more to affect performance while playing a video vs apps.

You're probably right, they could be different. Oh well....

Where is this:
Starting with Windows 11 build 25336, if you have 2 or more discrete graphics adapters with no integrated graphics, you can now choose which of the discrete graphics adapters is considered high-performance.
Both my power modes are the same GPU; I would like to change this to a default for each mode. Right now I need to set each app manually.
I am sure that you would agree that the RX6400 saves power

Hello, and welcome. :alien:

You will only be able to remove apps you added.

Removing an app from the list will reset it to the default Let Windows decide setting, so apps you can't remove can just be set to this for the same effect.

I added these apps. Well the 2 at the top. I believe it transferred from my windows 10 settings because I have 2 desktops, one with windows 10 and the other with windows 11. so I do believe I added them but I'm not able to move them. the thing is, i nno longer want these apps to have High performance as they actually make the app perform worst.

I added these apps. Well the 2 at the top. I believe it transferred from my windows 10 settings because I have 2 desktops, one with windows 10 and the other with windows 11. so I do believe I added them but I'm not able to move them. the thing is, i nno longer want these apps to have High performance as they actually make the app perform worst.

Are you at least able to change the performance level for them?
