Windows 10 comes with an Energy Saver mode to help you conserve more battery power on your laptops and other computers that can run on battery power instead of just being plugged into the wall.

The Energy Saver settings are available from the Settings application by default, but you’ll have to make a registry tweak to get them available from the Power Options dialog. Some people prefer having the Energy Saver settings from the Power Options because they know they can get to the Power Options menu easier and with little thought involved.

When you make the Energy Saver settings available from the Power Options dialog, you get three subcategory settings along with it: display brightness weight, energy saver policy, and the charge level.

The following tutorial demonstrates how to add the energy saver settings to the Power Options menu when you’re using a version of the Windows 10 operating system.

An example of what the Energy saver settings looks like from the Power Options dialog when you have it enabled:
