Laptops and tablets use less battery power

Anyone who uses a laptop, tablet, or smartphone on a regular basis knows how important battery life is, and Windows 10 is compatible with all three.

Microsoft understands this – as evidenced by its Edge browser's battery-friendly marketing – and has built several tools into Windows 10 to help reduce too much battery drain.

For example, all background apps can be turned off, preventing them from consuming valuable battery life. In addition, as we saw in a previous tip, a metered internet connection can be used to reduce background data usage.

Windows 10 also has its own set of power options, which can be found under Settings > System > Power & Sleep. Display sleep times can be set from here, and under Additional Power Settings, you can choose a power plan that will put less strain on your battery.
