6 Steps to Windows 10 Battery Saver

When working on a laptop, as so many people do these days, the new Windows 10 has a helpful feature for saving your battery power. Because, let’s face it, even in the technical age we live in, sometimes we end up where there is no power source and the last thing we want is to be offline because our battery is dead.

So if you are using a laptop, here are the steps to set your battery saver, which allows Windows 10 to go ‘behind the scenes’ and turn down the programs and applications that are sucking up your battery power, giving you more precious work time.

Click on the Start menu, which will bring up the following screen. Click on Settings.
