    Performance slider: No difference between Better and Best?


    Hello, I have a question about the performance slider on Windows 10 laptops (the one when you click the battery icon in the system tray).

    Am I legally blind, or there's really no noticeable performance increase when I set it from Better Performance to Best Performance? Yes, I can feel the increase from Better Battery to Better Performance (smoother scrolling in browsers), but Better to Best? Nothing.

    Bonus question: Why is there even better performance increase when I use the AC power? Better Performance on battery is slower than Better Performance on AC power, although it's the same slider setting. Is it done on hardware level, since the Windows power plan is the same (Balanced)?

    speaker ( or sound ) slider switch disappeared

    Hi Hank,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.


    • Are you able to use Volume slider on the taskbar?

    • Do you get any error message?

    • Are you able to see sound icon on the taskbar?
    I suggest you to hoover your mouse on the right side of the taskbar and click on the sound icon and try to use volume slider and check if it that works.

    Follow the steps below and check.


    • Discover the empty slot on the
      Taskbar
      and Right click.

    • Click on Properties.

    • Under Taskbar tab and Notification area
      click on Custom.

    • Tap on Select which icons appears on the taskbar.

    • Turn on Volume option.
    Hope this helps. If any other issues get back to us. We are glad to help you.

    Thanks

  4. Performance slider: No difference between Better and Best?

    "Chinese Characters" program delaying shutdown - a different approach.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your response.

    • As you have mentioned this happens only in the Admin account, is it local account set as admin account or the Microsoft account?
    I would suggest you to check the all apps list and check if that Chinese character app is present.

    After you try the above steps and share us the results what happens we can proceed with the further suggestions.

    Please post us back with the results after troubleshooting the above steps and check.

    Keep us posted to help you better.
