right click on the desktop screen and if the integrated gpu is used, then there will be a graphics properties option for the intel processors and if it is not integrated gpu there will be a "catalyst control center" option or nvidia option.

you can also click on the drop up button on the task bar at lower right corner of the screen.

#you can check the "program and features" in control panel and if dedicated gpu is used, there will be no AMD or Nvidia software installed.

I have a dedicated GPU and there's all kinds of Nvidia software listed under programs and features.

Go to device manager under the control panel. If you have 1 gpu listed under the display then it is integrated. If you have 2 then one will be the discrete gpu and the other will be the igpu.
