    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.

    Battery Saver - Add to Context Menu in Windows 10


    Hi,

    The Battery Saver can also be added to the Context Menu.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Battery Saver Settings]
    "Icon"="powercpl.dll,-506"
    "Position"="bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Battery Saver Settings\command]
    @="\"C:\\Windows\\explorer.exe\" ms-settings:batterysaver"

    using this shortcut brings me to the battery saver menu. I just want to toggle between ON and OFF. How should I modify it for quick toggle on the task bar then? This is to implement on my work laptop, where I have zero admin privileges (and of course no registry access)

    Thanks!

    Sorry to jump on the subject, out from nowhere without introducing myself.

    I hope someday windows will allow it because it's a really good feature.
