How To Set Your Power Plan In Windows 10?

How To Set, Customize And Delete Power Plan In Windows 10?

The Power Plan feature in Windows 10 is not new, since it was also available in earlier versions of the operating system. Power Plan is a collection of hardware and system settings that manage how your computer uses power and also helps you to manage your laptop battery life. Managing battery life is important, since without battery power, you cannot use your laptop unless it is plugged into a mains supply. There are three main plans: "Balanced", "Power saver", and "High performance". Each has different uses and settings to adapt to varying situations. Switching between plans makes changes that impact performance and power consumption. If you are not happy with how your plan manages power, you can customize it, by creating custom power plans with specific settings to suit your needs and computer configuration. Despite these options, you probably will not need to make changes to your Power Plan settings, since the "Balanced" power plan is set by default and is optimized for most users.
