    Why?
    Because...

    ...The slider will appear on a device only when the Balanced power plan, or any plan that is derived from Balanced, is selected. There is not an option for either users or OEMs to remove the slider UX.

    Devices that have the High Performance, Power Saver, or any “OEM Recommended” power plans will not be disturbed during the Windows upgrade process. If a user upgrades from a version of Windows that does not support the slider, to a version that does, there will be no change to their High Performance, Power Saver, or "OEM Recommended" power plan. These users will not see the slider UX, and they can still configure their power plans in the same way they could before upgrading.

    Welcome to Ten Forums @ridonctonc

    There are a number of settings that were in previous versions of Windows but by default are not visible in Windows 10's power options. Many can be added. See these tutorials to start with...

    Add or Remove Maximum Processor Frequency in Windows 10 Power Options

    Add or Remove Maximum processor state from Power Options in Windows

    Add Processor performance increase threshold to Windows Power Options

    Add or Remove System cooling policy from Power Options in Windows





    I can only suggest you download the .reg file from each tutorial, then merger them into a single .reg file with Notepad.




    Use a plan that is NOT the 'Balanced' plan, or derived from it.

    Thanks for the help, I was trying to use Xbox console companion to stream my xbox one as I always do & noticed the XB1 controller wouldn't keep a connection. Tried Xbox accessories app and noticed that the controller continuously disconnecting.

    I realized the issue was with power options suspending bluetooth (repeatedly) yet all the options were missing & CSenabled trick no longer works...

    Spent about an hour looking into what's going on and while i do understand the 'benefits' of MS removing some of these settings they did so with absolute disregard to users personal needs with their systems. they gave us a very broken and useless power option slider that doesn't resolve any issue when set to 'max'

    I had to use the registry files to add the options back in as elevated prompt solution had no effects.

    Now back to playing Fallout xD, Thanks again =)

    Sadly I'm not back to fallout just yet '

    It appears win10 2004 latest series of updates keeps forcing the bluetooth adapter to continuously reset. Tried options of turning off power management for usb (no longer available for bluetooth) in device manager which doesn't resolve the issue.

    installing 1909 from ISO, 2004 belongs in the recycle bin!

    This PowerShell will help you find the optoins you're looking for:

    Code:
    gci 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings' -Recurse |
    
        ? Property -contains 'Attributes' | gp |
    
     select Attributes, PSCHildName, @{ N = 'Name' ; E = { $_.FriendlyName.Split(',')[-1] }} |out-gridview
    An Attrbutes value of 1 hides the option, a value of 2 makes it visible.

    And if you truly want to enable all, even those your system may not support, run this from an Admin PowerShell console:

    ***At Your Own RIsk ***
    Code:
    gci 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings' -Recurse |
    
        ? Property -contains 'Attributes' | 
    
    Set-ItemProperty -Name Attributes -Value 2

    Update: GridView as Interactive Control:

    If you run the following code from an Admin PowerShell console ( Admin required to modify values under HKLM: \), the Gridview will allow you to select items to toggle their visibility.

    Code:
    $Title         = 'Select option(s) to toggle visibility'
    $PowerSettings = 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings'
    @( [PSCustomObject]@{
            Attributes  = 0
            PSChildName = '{ -- No Changes -- }'
            Name        = ' "Safety" row to clear selection'
    } ) +
    @( Get-ChildItem $PowerSettings -Recurse | ? Property -contains 'Attributes' | Get-ItemProperty |
        Select Attributes, PSCHildName,
               @{ N = 'Name' ; E = { $_.FriendlyName.Split(',')[-1] }} ) | Sort PSChildName |
    Out-GridView -Passthru -Title $Title | ForEach {
        $Splat = @{
            Path  = Resolve-Path "$PowerSettings\*\$($_.PSChildName)"
            Name  = 'Attributes'
            Value = -bNot $_.Attributes -bAnd 0x0000003 
        }
        Set-ItemProperty @Splat -Confirm
    }

    I have the ultimate solution to your problems on how to fix the power plan & options as you well know the lack of advanced selection of settings and only been able to choose the balance plan profile scheme but I've now resolve the Windows registry bugs and have a download link ready for you to fix this issue on your PC.

    You will need password to access the winrar file: matrix
    DId you see the updated PowerShel I posted? It provides GUI controlto toggle all available options. I don't see that anything else is needed.Toggle-PowerSettingsVisibility.ps1

    Missing Advanced Power Options-screenshot-830-.png

    Code can be saved as a .ps1 file & then dot-sourced in your proifle or console session or copied & Pasted into an Admin PowerShell console.
    Code:
    Function Toggle-PowerSettingsVisibility {
        $Title         = 'Select option(s) to toggle visibility'
        $PowerSettings = 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings'
        @( [PSCustomObject]@{
                Attributes  = 0
                PSChildName = '{ -- No Changes -- }'
                Name        = ' "Safety" row to clear selection'
        } ) +
        @( Get-ChildItem $PowerSettings -Recurse | ? Property -contains 'Attributes' | Get-ItemProperty |
            Select Attributes, PSCHildName,
                   @{ N = 'Name' ; E = { $_.FriendlyName.Split(',')[-1] }} ) | Sort PSChildName |
        Out-GridView -Passthru -Title $Title | ForEach {
            $Splat = @{
                Path  = Resolve-Path "$PowerSettings\*\$($_.PSChildName)"
                Name  = 'Attributes'
                Value = -bNot $_.Attributes -bAnd 0x0000003 
            }
            Set-ItemProperty @Splat -Confirm
        }
    }
    Toggle-PowerSettingsVisibility

    I know, I know.. zombie thread. But I'm desperate.

    So this solution from Keith worked like a charm! It brought back a bunch of the advanced power options. I have a separate but related issue that I was hoping could be addressed the same way. It's the "display power saving technology" function. Does anyone know if there is a PowerShell script to target that feature directly? It's amazingly difficult to disable and even if you manage to do it, it comes back and the method used to disable it no longer functions. As an artist, it completely ruins my days lol. The feature adjusts screen brightness to compensate for *on screen content*. So if I pull up something very bright, the screen gets bright. Something dark, the screen gets dark. Not only is that backwards for usability, but it makes adjusting paintings and giving student critiques essentially impossible. It's so bad I'm about to switch to a macbook, which I absolutely do not want to do ha.

    Anyone know if PowerShell can hit this feature?

    Josh, is this a Dell brand you're working on? If it is, the setting to turn this "feature" off is in the BIOS.

    This was "borrowed" from another forum:

    Here is how to fix:

    1. Boot into BIOS mode
    2. Go to 'display' tab (on some models it is under 'video')
    3. Scroll down to 'EcoPower'
    4. Turn it off
    5. Save changes
