Windows 10 is the best-optimized desktop operating system Microsoft has ever released to the public. The Redmond company has been working hard to improve Windows 10 since the launch day, adding more exciting features and changes to the platform. One such change lies in battery-saving mode.

If you have just updated to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we have a couple of tips that help you improve battery life on your computer. Before we begin, make sure you now have the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update installed on your machine.

How to improve battery life in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

  1. Adjust display brightness

The first thing you need to do is to turn down display brightness on your computer. Keep in mind that high level of display brightness may cause a considerable amount of battery drain. To turn down display brightness in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, open Settings on your computer, select System and click on Display from the left-side bar. Once you are in, move the slider to the left to turn down display brightness.

  1. Disable keyboard backlights

If you are now using a laptop that has a backlit keyboard, it’s a good idea to turn off keyboard backlights to get more battery power. Most of today’s laptops include a keyboard shortcut that helps quickly turn on/off keyboard backlights. Alternatively, you can click on the Start menu, then search for Windows Mobility Center and turn off keyboard backlights.

  1. Battery modes

With the Fall Creators Update, you can easily switch between battery modes. To do this, you simply need to tap the battery icon in the taskbar. Once you do that, you will see a new battery slider. All you need to do now is to move the slider to switch between best battery life and best performance modes.

  1. Make sure you have enabled battery saver mode

Windows 10 includes a nice battery saver mode. As the name implies, it turns off calendar and email syncing, and lowers your display’s brightness. Normally, Windows will automatically activate Battery Saver when your PC’s battery runs low.

If you don’t see anything when your computer reaches 20% battery life, then there is a good chance that you have disabled it. To turn on Battery Saver, open Settings, then click System and then hit Battery from the left-side bar.

  1. Check what’s using battery life in Windows 10

Windows 10 allows you to check the amount of battery used by each app on your computer. To do this, right-click the Start menu and select Settings. After that, click on System and select Battery. Once you are in, click Battery usage by app. From the list of apps, locate an app that is using the most battery power and turn it off.
