    Power plans dissappeared after latest big update


    I switch form power saver to high performance. When I work I want high performance, when I just tinker or type some text files I don't need that, so I switch to power saver. I was on power saver, I check power plans and notice `high performance` missing. I switch to `balanced` and then `power saver` disappears also.

    I believe this has to do with latest big update. Any idea on how to get my power plans back? Or what is the alternative that Windows provides now for doing that?

    I see this in Control Panel, build 16299.125... are you missing something there?

    However, clicking Additional power settings in Settings did briefly show me High Performance which disappeared- is that what you mean?

    Marron,

    If you are seeing something like this

    then click on the little arrow symbol in the bottom right next to Show additional plans

    All the other plans will now be shown. Notice also that switching to a different plan alters where they are displayed.

    If this is not the problem you are trying to describe then I suggest posting some screenshots to explain what the problem is.

    Microsoft's "confusion tactic"

    Clicking on "Create a Power Plan" brings you here:

    Marron,

    Ver 1709 hides all the power plans except Balanced and any Custom plans you have made. So if you saw what wert posted under the line Microsoft's "confusion tactic" you did not, at the time, have any custom plans. Ver 1709 treats Balanced & your custom plans in the way you are used to so you should not have any particular problems.

    However, do note that Ver 1709 introduced "power mode" control - you might see this in action by clicking on the power icon in your taskbar and there is a discussion of it in Change Power Mode Level [slider] - TenForums
