    How to make browsers work with AMD GPU?

    I just noticed that I can't make my browsers: Internet Explorer / Chrome to work with AMD Switchable graphics.
    (And some others softwares such as WMP)
    I have a laptop with both AMD gpu and the on-board intel, but I can't make the browser work on the AMD one, which I need it because I want to play some game on the browser and it is more demanding.

    On the AMD Catalyst Control Center, at the Switchable Graphics Application Settings there is a lock symbol near the programs I am talking about when trying to set them on "High performance" (meaning it should work on the AMD dedicated gpu)

    Is there a way to remove that lock? Or make it work somehow?

    It is best to use manufacturer's driver for this, even if it is outdated and not designed for Windows 10, especially with such an unfortunate combination Intel + AMD. Switchable Graphics just do not make it easy.

    Thanks, but I already updated my drivers, but the problem did not go.
