How to Add or Remove Internet Explorer in Power Options in Windows

information   Information
The JavaScript Timer Frequency setting under the Internet Explorer power option can slow down the java script animations and execution in Internet Explorer which in turn can save battery life. If you want faster browsing in Internet Explorer, then you might want to change this setting to "maximum performance" in power settings. Slower performance is a compromise to save battery life. By default, when using a PC on battery, Internet Explorer will automatically switch to "maximum power savings" for JavaScript Timer Frequency.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Internet Explorer and it's sub 'JavaScript Timer Frequency' setting in Power Options for all users in Windows 7, 8, and 10.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.

This could be handy if you wanted to set this how you wanted, then remove the setting to prevent other users from being able to change it in Power Options.
