Selecting the use of different Display adapters

As you may or may not know, some laptops love to launch Minecraft using the standard integrated graphics compared to the more powerful dedicated graphics card. If possible, it would be awesome to be able to select/tell Minecraft which one to launch with.

Right now, the only way to change it is to look up the exact java.exe file Minecraft uses to run and go into your system settings and manually change it. For Windows 11, at least.

Open Settings>System>Display>Graphics> Then browse for the Java.exe Minecraft uses, and manually change it to use your dedicated graphics.

I should also mention adding the Minecraft.exe doesn't work. It would change only the launcher of Minecraft to use your dedicated.

    Admin response

    We looked into adding this feature but it would require elevated permissions and users running CurseForge as admin, which is not something everyone can do.
