    Battery icon, % remaining


    I put windows 10 on my tablet, and I have the battery icon in the notification area.
    If I tap it when the charger is plugged in, it will pop up a percentage and 'time remaining until fully charged'.
    If I tap it when it isn't charging, the icon background changes as if it registered the tap, but nothing is displayed.
    I would expect to see something like battery remaining, in percentage and time.
    Is this normal?

    It is normal if you had it off of power and used it on battery. Sometimes you will get that when Windows is calibrating the battery and OS.
