Change listed power plans?

Is there any way to change the listed power plans?

I am asking this because when I am on battery power, I go to power saver.
When I am plugged in, I go to High Performance

Is there any way to change it because when I go to Performance it lists them as shown:
Balanced
High Performance
And when I go to Power Saver it lists them as shown:
Balanced
Power Saver

Is there any way to show it as:
High Performance
Power Saver

Hello Isaac,

You could use these power plan shortcuts below pinned to the taskbar (or where you like) to make changing them easier to do.

Power Plan - Create Shortcut to Change Power Plan

Hope this helps,
