Prioritizing External GPU over Internal

  OcularMirror 17:55 27 Mar 2018

I have a laptop with the intel integrated graphics and an Nvidia 940MX. I also have an external GTX 1070 that connects via Thunderbolt 3. In order to use the external card I have to disable the 940MX in device manager. However, when I unplug the external card it only uses the integrated graphics and I have to manually enable the 940MX to use it and then manually disable it again when I am done. Is there a faster way to do this, for example a setting that would enable me to only use the 940MX when the other one is unplugged, or perhaps a shortcut to enable/disable it in device manager?
