    I have new Surface Book i7 (16gb mem 512 gb SSD) with the Nvidia graphics card. I just noticed that when I play flash videos through either Chrome or Edge the system doesn't seem to use Hardware Acceleration (that you can set in the flash settings)

    I presume this because the CPU usage for the browser while playing at full screen is about 10% (low res) while my older laptop (which has a similar config older i7 16gb descrete graphics etc.) runs at about 2.5%. Also the fan comes on pretty quickly because the CPU heats up fast.

    I tried using the Nvidia control panel and adding the browsers to the 'preferred graphics processor' list but this had no effect. Any ideas how I can resolve this?
