My Intel Graphics is not being used

Hello, I’m new to manjaro.
I had installed the operating system the other day. I noticed that my operating system boot time and the time for the DE to load after login is long . tried running nvtop and
i noticed that my Intel 630 graphics not being used at all.i would love to get help from the community.
Here is the image for it imgur(dot)com/a/hNSgPog

How did you reach the conclusion?

Don’t post images - we won’t respond to images as they are useless - and that is one of the reasons that new members cannot post images.

A sincere effort to describe your issue in words using proper spelling and grammar goes a long way.

Please provide textual description - perhaps terminal output as text

Thank you.
My Apologies for posting the thread.
I’m new to Linux and with a recommendation from my friend got to know about Manjaro.
Thank you for spending your valuable time helping me.

I only have one system with dual graphics - an old ThinkPad T550 - so the best I could do was pointing you in the right direction :slight_smile:
