    How to Turn On or Off Battery Saver in Windows 10


    Windows 10 introduces a new battery saver feature that conserves your PC's battery by limiting background activity and adjusting hardware settings. Battery saver will turn on automatically if you like, but you can also turn it on manually.

    You can also add or remove apps to an always allowed list to always run in the background, even when Batter Saver is on.

    By default, battery saver is turned off unless you manually turn on battery saver, or you have battery saver set to automatically turn on when your battery falls below a percentage you set.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off battery saver for your user account to conserve your PC's battery in Windows 10.

    Hey Adam,

    I'm afraid there's not much more information on this feature other than it works by limiting the background activity on your device when the mode is activated.

    I'm going to leave it turned on then and see what doesn't happen *Smile

    Lenovo used to have a feature called battery stretch which would dim your screen, throttle CPU, turn off selected wireless, Bluetooth, keyboard backlight, etc. It was pretty useful - it would be good if something similar turns up for this...

  6. Shawn,

    I don't see this Battery Saver option in Settings. Is this because I've got W10 in a VM?

    Hello Maggi,

    Yeah, your PC would have to have a battery to have this feature, and a VM wouldn't. *Sad

    Hello Bobby,

    Nope. Battery Saver is a per user account setting. *Smile

    Hello front360,

    It's not just you. It appears this setting has been removed from Power Options.

    Tutorial updated now to remove the old OPTION THREE.
