Windows 10 PCs have four Power Mode levels namely: Battery Saver (while on battery power), Better battery , Better Performance, and Best performance. The Windows performance power slider enables you to quickly and intelligently trade performance of your system for longer battery life. If you don’t have access to a power outlet then you might want to use the Power Saver mode or if you want your laptop to perform well then you might want to use the High Performance mode.
If you would like to adjust the power mode of your laptop then here’s how you can do it.
1- click on the battery icon in the task bar at the bottom right corner.
2- Once you tap the battery icon you can see the Power Mode settings where you can change the Power mode. You can select their power plan mode by moving the slider to the left or right.
Battery Saver Mode: Saves power and extends battery life when the system is not connected to a power source. When the battery saving mode is activated, some Windows functions are disabled, limited or behave differently. The brightness of the screen is also reduced. Battery saving mode is only available for direct current.
Best performance: favors performance over power savings. It is targeted at users who desire the best performance possible for their games and apps. If you want battery life, this is the worst power slider level to use.
Better Performance: Default slider mode that slightly favors performance over battery life and is appropriate for users who want to tradeoff power for better performance of their apps. Available on both AC and DC.
Better Battery: Delivers longer battery life than the default settings on previous versions of Windows. Available on both AC and DC. In some cases, users will see this mode labeled Recommended, rather than Better Battery, in their slider UI.
Note: The power mode level you select will be applied separately for when you are plugged in and for when on battery power.
