    Usually uninstalling SCM, reboot, install newest (or even the same version) SCM, reboot, then try the switch / app trigger for switching - which should reboot you into the other GPU.

    You can also do it in the BIOS, using the magic combo it unlocks a lot of crap in the BIOS, GPU switch is one of those options.

    Cool, can you please post a BIOS screen photo, so we can see where it is and what are the options?

    Sure.

    Falkentyne posted the combo today on this forum somewhere, and if @Naweed R. wants it I will send it via PM.

    The option is in the advanced menu, change to what you want, save and exit and it switches the GPU in use, I wont even install SCM again, because thats what it only was good for

    Be WARNED That on some MSI bios versions, switching from dGPU to iGPU and back to dGPU in some conditions and certain ...uh...circumstances, can cause a permanent black screen unless you know how to clear the CMOS. This can be fixed by setting PEG ROOT PORT 1 from Auto to Enabled. I already told Svet about this.

    This is exactly what i was looking for in the BIOS.
    If you could send a pm about how to access it, that would be great :)

    Is it really that risky to switch back and forth from the BIOS? my current BIOS version is E1782IMS.11D from 10/14/2016

    I shall try @hmscott 's method first as having to switch from the button is easier. I assumed that there was no way to do it from the BIOS

    Correct. Just take good precautions.
