Windows 7: Power schemes

20 Apr 2010   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)
Power schemes


Is there some way to change the value of shown power schemes when clicking the battery task bar icon?
Vista shows 3 schemes, but Windows 7 seems to show only 2 by default...

I'd like to revert this back to 3 because I really switch a lot between them...

Hello Propaganistas,

Sorry, but no.

However, as a workaround, you can create shortcuts to switch to any power plan. Next, you can Pin to taskbar these shortcuts, pin a folder to the taskbar and put the shortcut in that folder, or use where you like.

Hope this helps,
