    What does the power slider do ?

    Dear forum readers,

    With the fall creators update (1709), MS mainstreamed a power slider in the battery UI for everyone using a power plan with Balanced personality.

    While it surely controls the new power throttling feature (setting the slider in the rightmost position disables it), what it does outside of this is rather unclear. If one defines a bug as unspecified behaviour, then this whole slider is a bug... unless there are clear specifications somewhere ?

    Hello Novhak, :)

    The tutorial below can provide some more details that I hope will help.

    I wonder why they even put in the slider UI when it doesn't do anything yet. Seems like you'd want to keep the old power packages and only display the slider when the OEMs actually provide the configurations...
