So, currently, as is normal, my display is run by and connected to the integrated Intel graphics. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7567 gaming laptop (you can see it's entire specifications here) with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti; it runs 3D applications, like games (by default), or anything else I deliberately set it to run. However, as far as I can tell, it does not render video or anything else it might do if it were connected to the display.

So my question is this: is it possible (whether by changing settings through Device Manager, by going into the BIOS, by physically opening up the back of the computer and swapping plugs around, or by some other means) to make the default graphics card and display adapter my NVIDIA card instead of the integrated graphics?

I've seen all sorts of tutorials about how to make X program run on the dedicated card instead of the integrated graphics. I know how to do that, and it's not what I'm asking.
