To change prime mode use terminal command 'prime-select nvidia | intel | query'
you need to log out and back in for mode change to take affect. (restart maybe more reliable if logout not work)

to find out what mode your using:
sudo prime-select query

to change mode Intel to nvidia
sudo prime-select nvidia

to change mode nvidia to intel
sudo prime-select intel

you can also change prime modes in nvidia control panel and then reboot.
