    Windows Battery Usage


    Hi,

    I'm new to this community, I don't the fact that Windows 10 tracks battery usage by app, is there are way the turn off the tracking?

    The setting specifically is under System, then battery then the small link that says "see which apps are affecting battery life".


    Thanks!

    :)

    Windows Battery Usage

    Acer battery won't charge

    What if the battery unremoveable? Should I disassemble and remove it? also there is a switch underneath the case and around the RAM slot that prevent the laptop to turn on when the case is open and without the charger. Is that the same as removing the battery? although when turned on with charger, the laptop still see the battery. Thanks

    - - - Updated - - -

    I took the report, the design capacity was 41.440 mWh but full charge capacity is now 25.752 mWh. Is it that bad? Before this happened I believe HWMonitor also show the same number with 38% Wear Level.
    Here's the report file
