How to swap high-performance GPU and power saving GPU?

Using Intel Arc A380 and NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3080 Ti.
After installing Intel GPU, GPU performance decreased dramatically.
This is because the Windows OS recognized the Intel GPU as a high-performance GPU, and the Intel GPU was doing everything even though all monitors were connected to the 3080 Ti.

There's no menu to select a high-performance GPU in Settings -> Graphics -> Change default graphics settings
I tried contacting Intel customer service, but they replied that I should contact Microsoft as this issue is controlled by Windows.

    Same issue here! There doesn't seem to be any way in Intel's Command Center, Arc Control, NVIDIA Control Panel, Graphics settings or Device Manager. Windows just chooses the wrong GPU to assign to High Performance.

    We don't want to disable the Intel Arc as I use mine for Stream capture while I'm gaming on the NVIDIA Card and I don't want to have to add every single application and change them manually to use the "Power Saving" GPU because by default Windows chooses high performance for games and that is the wrong GPU!

    Fix this!!

    Menu settings to use only Nvidia GPU may be located:

    a) Nvidia control panel
    b) Device manager
    c) BIOS

    This is only by example as this is for a HP computer.

    There may or may not be menu options in the BIOS on the problematic computer.

    The computer that I'm using to type this post is a HP zbook mobile workstation.

    This is their link with instructions on how to turn off integrated graphics in the BIOS:
