The battery saver mode in Windows 10 is a great help for the notebook computers as it can automatically make the battery last much longer than usual once the charge level of the battery drops down a certain level. In the battery saver mode, Windows 10 takes some steps like reducing the screen brightness and closing down some not so urgent services to reduce the battery power consumption. Usually Windows 10 slips into the battery saver mode when the battery charge drops down to the 20% of its fully charged status. But you can force Windows 10 into the battery saver mode at any time without waiting for your battery charge to come down to the 20% level. Here is how:
- Press the Windows logo key on your keyboard to open the Start menu and select the cogwheel icon to open the Windows settings.
- In the settings window, click on System to open the system related settings which include settings for the battery and how it is charged.
- elect Battery from the left side and you will see all the settings related to Battery Saver. You have to enable the Battery Saver if it is not already enabled.
- Now slide the battery percentage slider to a level more than the current charge level of the battery. For example, if the current battery charge level is 80% then move the slider to 85%. This will instantly put the PC into the battery saver mode.
This is a quick method of forcing Windows 10 into using the battery saver mode. It can be useful when you are outside traveling and know that you won’t get any chance of charging the laptop battery any time soon.
