    Hello DTG,

    Were you wanting to add this custom plan to the context menu from the tutorial?

    In that case, take a look at post #2 to find the GUID number and name for your custom power plan. Post back with the information in step 4 there, and I'll be happy to post back with a modified version of the tutorial that includes your custom power plan.

    ummm i did post it,
    5) If you like, you could also just export the PowerSchemes key, and upload it in your post instead.
    I posted the whole Power Schemes reg entry.

    its the 8ee203e3-4c39-48e2-bfc6-0249f0c8a6f0 entry.

    Ok. I just needed to verify that was the one. What is the name of this plan since it's in binary in the reg code?

    Sorry about verifying. I just had to make sure. Here's a .reg file below that will add the context menu with "Plan B" in it as well.

    Add_DTG-custom_Choose_Power_Plan_to_Desktop_Context_Menu.reg

    Thank you very much.

    Ok, I see what you did there. Seems simple enough to add more profiles if needed.

    Something recently came to my attention, I dont know if this is an issue or not. When I use the right context menu to switch power plans, then open power options, the selected plan does not change. Like If I run on High Performance for gaming then change to another plan using the right click context, then open Power Options, it still says High Performance as selected. How can I tell which plan is actually active?

    When I added this new plan the menu added an extra line separator in there.
