    How to Create a Battery Saver Shortcut in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Windows 10 introduces a new battery saver feature that conserves your PC's battery by limiting background activity and adjusting hardware settings. Battery saver will turn on automatically if you like, but you can also turn it on manually.

    This tutorial will show you how to create or download a battery saver shortcut that opens directly to Battery saver in Settings in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316, Microsoft has renamed “Battery Saver” settings page to be “Battery” since they believe a single entry point for all battery related settings including Battery Saver simplifies the user experience.
