    Default Power plans deleted, need restore


    Hi, I messed up at some point when trying to configure my power plans and I got the default plans "High performance" and "Power saver" deleted. I wish to restore them. I've already looked in reset and restore power plans to default setting section of tutorials in this forum, and tried typing "powercfg -restoredefaultschemes" on cmp, but all that did is delete all custom plans I made and reset the "Balanced" default plan. That is the only plan I have now. Any solutions or links, please?

    Did you really mess things up or have you merely updated to Ver 1709? In Ver 1709, Power saver & High performance power plans are disabled.

    If you click on your Taskbar [System tray] power icon, you'll probably now see this -

    Windows 10 now seems to be moving in the direction of 'adjusting' a single core power plan [called Balanced] instead of relying on having different plans for different circumstances. There is some useful information in

    You can still create your own custom power plans if you want to so you can create power saver & high performance equivalents.

    I have v1709 on my Dell laptop but I only see the reduced functionality settings shown below. How do I get the correct settings? I haven't installed any Dell power plan utilities.

    Steve,

    Customize the Windows performance power slider - Microsoft Docs - "The slider will appear on a device only when the Balanced power plan, or any plan that is derived from Balanced, is selected."

    In Enable or Disable Power Throttling - TenForums, Shawn says, "Power Throttling is currently available only for processors with Intelís Speed Shift technology, available in Intelís 6th-gen (and beyond) Core processors Ė Microsoft is working on expanding support to other processors as well over the next few months.".

    I only have the Balanced power pan but not a 6th gen CPU. Is that why I don't see a slider?

    Steve,

    I think you would be better off asking Shawn in that tutorial or even as a fresh question of your own [the title of this current thread is not going to attract the attention of those who might have studied power throttling to a greater degree].

    I have just checked my oldest [13 year old] Windows 10 computer and it shows the slider. It is a Pentium M and it has SpeedStep. So the roll-out to which Shawn refers must have taken place.
