Windows 10 Anniversary update switched my graphics driver from NVIDIA to Intel

I have a Lenovo laptop --less than a year old-- with NVIDIA GeForce GT730M graphics card. The Windows 10 Anniversary update disabled the NVIDIA driver and switched the display to Intel HD Graphics 4600. Thinking there might be an upgrade compatibility issue, I downloaded and installed the newest (last week's driver update) NVIDIA driver for my card. How do I get my system to recognize my NVIDIA card again and set it to be my primary display driver?

I have the same problem which just happened today's (Oct 16/17) update.  Rec'd notice on two programs my Nvidia graphics card had been switched to Intel - these two programs will not work now.  It isn't the manufacturer's fault - please tell us how to revert to our original graphic cards/settings!

 I may have found a solution - hopefully "the" solution.  And it's simple!

- Click on computer screen and go to NVIDIA Control Panel  

- On left hand side of the page, click Manage 3D settings        

- Choose the Global Settings tab. 

- The first line under the tab is Preferred graphics processor - click the arrow to the right an it will show High-performance NVIDIA processor                                                                      

_ Click Apply

- Cross your fingers and smile!
