How to Turn On Battery Saver using Settings in Windows 10?

If you are using a Windows 10 laptop, you should enable the battery saver feature in Windows 10.

Nothing is more annoying than when you are working on your Windows 10 laptop, and the laptop indicates that you only have a certain number of minutes left before the built-in battery of your laptop runs out.

In Windows 10, there is a feature called Battery Saver that can reduce the consumption of the battery in your laptop to work longer with a charged battery.

How does the battery saver work in Windows 10?

The Battery Saver feature helps save energy when a system is running on battery power. Some Windows features are disabled or behave differently when battery saving is enabled.

Users can turn on battery saving when the battery level reaches a certain percentage.

On Windows 10 for desktop editions (Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education), battery saver is automatically turned on when your battery is using less than 20%.

The Microsoft Store, Microsoft Mail, and calendar apps are no longer constantly synchronized.

Apps running in the background are blocked. However, users can allow specific individual apps to run in battery-saving mode. Certain categories of apps remain active. For example, VOIP (Voice-over IP) apps are not blocked.

Non-critical Windows update downloads are blocked. However, Windows update scans (searching for new updates) still occur.

Also, the speed of your Windows 10 system is adjusted, and the screen brightness is turned down.
