    Where is the battery charge taskbar indicator?


    I have a Asus Tablet. I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10.
    Where is the battery charge ICON for the task bar?
    To many times the tablet died for lack of a warning that the battery was low.
    1. Where is the battery charge app. located or is there a download?
    2. How do I install and display it in the task bar?

    Hello currentresident, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You can turn on the "Power" system icon to have the battery show on your taskbar notification area.

    If you have a group policy set to disable it, it would cause the Power icon setting to be grayed out. You can use step 7 in OPTION TWO below to enable the icon to see if that may be issue.

    Go ahead and post a screenshot showing this grayed out in Settings to see if anything may stand out.

    Do you have 3rd party power management software installed that may being used instead?

    Possibly included from the OEM if this is an OEM computer. If you have a UPS battery connected to the computer with its software installed, it'll disable the Power icon.
