Battery Saver mode

Battery Saver mode in Windows 10 allows you to save your laptops battery automatically by limiting the number of background activities and managing various hardware adjustments.

This usually means that performance of your computer will decrease and you can also manually turn it off if you wish to experience the full performance of your computer.

How to create a shortcut to access Battery saver settings in Windows 10:

  1. Right click anywhere on the empty area in your desktop, click on New and Shortcut.
  2. In the window that pops up, type in the target location box

    %windir%\explorer.exe %localappdata%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-US\AAA_SettingsPageBatterySaver.settingcontent-ms

  3. Type in name for your shortcut as BatterySaver or anything which you may like. Click Finish to create the shortcut.


You can use this shortcut as it is, however, if you want to assign an icon to it, follow these steps:

  1. Right click on the shortcut and select Properties.
  2. Click Change Icon.
  3. Select the icon from the list of icons displayed or browse the file System32\taskbarcpl.dll and select an icon.


For quick access you can pin the shortcut to taskbar, add it to quick launch or assign a keyboard shortcut to it.
