How to Enable Remaining Battery Time in Windows 10

Windows 10 no longer displays the estimated battery life after the Creators update. You will only see a percentage when you hover your mouse over the battery icon – not even. Although it has its own particularities, you may still want to see it.

Although the time interval is not accurate and may vary depending on the use of Windows 10, it is more useful to have an estimate of the remaining battery life than a percentage estimate. Microsoft allows users to know how many hours remain on one of their devices, the Surface Headphones. However, it is somewhat ridiculous that Microsoft has decided to remove the same functionality as all other Surface products, including Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2.

Modify BIOS settings

Activation of the remaining battery life can be performed and lasts less than one minute:

  • Restart the PC
  • Quickly press the ESC key before the HP logo appears.
  • Select F10 BIOS Configuration from the menu.
  • Use the right arrow key to access the system configuration.
  • Select the remaining battery life and press Enter.
  • Select On
  • Press F10 to save and exit the BIOS.

Use of the Registry

registry editor - Another installation is in progress in Windows 10

Warning : The registry editor is a powerful tool whose abuse can make your system unstable or even ineffective. It’s a pretty simple hack, and as long as you follow the instructions, you shouldn’t have any problems. However, if you have never worked with him before, you should consider how to use the registry editor before you start. And permanently save the registry (and your computer!) before making any changes.

Open the Windows registry by typing regedit in the Windows Search or Startup window. Navigate to the next location;

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power

You have to look for things here. First look for a value called EnergyEstimationDisabled. If it exists, you must delete it. If you have difficulty deleting the value, you can set it to 0 and not delete it.

CONCLUSION

There are also several other options, including the standard performance system, such as the Performance (Standard) versus Balanced system. If battery life is longer for you, activating Balanced can give you extra longevity.

That’s it, that’s it! You now have a rough estimate of the remaining life of your battery. If you are disturbed by such micro-management of the battery, you can deactivate the function at any time and return to the standard percentage value.
