In this Windows 10 guide, we will be taking a look at turning on Power Saver mode in Windows 10. Changing your power plan to Power Saver mode will help save energy by reducing your computer’s performance where possible, and dimming the brightness of your display.
So if you are using a laptop this is great news as it means you will be able to use your laptop for longer before having to charge the battery, and if you are using a desktop computer then power saver mode could help reduce the electricity your computer consumes.
By default, Windows 10 sets all PCs and laptops to a ‘balanced mode’ power plan, but if you want to change it to a plan that may increase your laptops battery life or even save you energy and power, and possibly reduce electricity costs then changing it to Power Saver can help you.
