I'm making the donut from the Blender guru tutorial series, but when I went to switch to cycles, it was supposedly already rendering in cycles even though it looked like Eevee. when I was working yesterday, cycles worked fine but as soon as I opened the file again today, I couldn't see it in cycles.

    $\begingroup$ It sounds like you may be in material preview mode (second to right of the 4 circles in top right of viewport). To get the Cycles look, switch to "Rendered Preview" (farthest circle to the right) $\endgroup$ Sep 10, 2020 at 19:48
