I have installed the AMD Catalyst Omega 14.12 into my DELL Inspiron 14 5447 Laptop,and it is functioning smoothly.
But can I apply the AMD Dynamic Switchable graphics?
How to enable it in Windows-8.1(64-bit)? Or is it auto enabled?

I believe its automatic
If you are a gamer,just go to powerplay and set it to Max Performance instead of Balanced to force enable AMD Gpu for all games etc

But I can't select it manually.

My active power plan is Dell.

It is auto selected but you can select it manually as well.

There lies the problem,the factory one which came had the switchable settings for Intel HD GPU(inbuilt) or AMD Radeon M265(dGPU).
But after I had installed the above mentioned driver,those presets can't be done.

there was no manual override for Switchable Graphics in my laptop with the factory drivers
infact i used it with Dell drivers for 2 months and thought it had poor gpu until I installed Leshcat and my AMD gpu actually started working

try putting all settings into performance mode and see

otherwise I highly suggest Leshcat drivers

use this guide to remove-
Unified Leshcat Driver Manual

and download Leshcat Drivers-
Leshcat’s Catalyst 14.12 Omega UnifL - leshcatlabs.net

for install just click on install instructions at the end of the guide i posted

Leshcat basically modifies AMD official drivers for better performance etc
Laptop even runs cooler

Unable to download.:cry:

Moreover it is telling as such :--->

Windows 8 will install default AMD and Intel Drivers from its repositories.
Do not try to remove Windows 8/8.1 standard AMD and Intel Drivers as it might break Windows 8/8.1 ability to install Video Drivers!
If you have Windows 8/8.1 installed - you are done with cleaning procedures!

I am a bit confused Friend.
Shall I uninstall AMD Catalyst + Drivers according to procedures or not?
The latest 14.12 Omega UnifL driver can't be downloaded,but 14.4 v2.4(64-bit) can be downloaded.
Please suggest and guide me,Friend.

Steps which apply for you-

Steps:

1. Navigate the Control Panel, and delete drivers using "Programs and Features".

Uninstall_standard

2. Locate & Select “AMD Catalyst Install Manager”, launch it and select "Express Uninstall ALL AMD Software". Execute it and follow instructions. Reboot.

ACIM

3. In same fashion, once again navigate to "Programs and Features" and locate Intel Driver. It can look like this:

intel_paf_1

or like this:

intel_paf_2

Uninstall it.

4. Reboot.

5. Download and install Display Driver Uninstaller.

First, remove AMD leftovers:

DDU_AMD

Secondly, remove Intel leftovers:

DDU_Intel

That's it

Thank you very much for the steps/guidance.
But what about the drivers?
Can't download the latest Catalyst 14.12 Omega UnifL...shall I download the 14.4 ver.2.4 one?

Yes,bro. I have again re-installed Catalyst 14.12 Omega + Intel HD Inbuilt GPU drivers separately. This is due to issues/errors arising out from installing the Leshcat Catalyst 14.4(ver. 2.4,64-bit) Omega UnifL driver after successfully following the uninstalling/cleaning up procedures of previous drivers,as guided by Friend, [MENTION=184724]kkn13[/MENTION]
Simply put the Leshcat Catalyst driver failed to install.
