There are a number of Power Plans defaulted to Windows 10, namely Balanced, Power Saver and High Performance, or you can create one of your own. Depending on your selection, a given plan can help save energy consumption or Increase system performance. You can change between Power Plans as you see fit, hence to simply this task, In this tutorial I will show you how to add the Choose Power Plan option to the right-click context menu.
Our day-to-day computational tasks, differ from one moment to the next. Sometimes we require that little bit of extra boost In performance, whilst other times there's the need to conserve power- namely when utilizing a laptop on battery. As a result, changing your Power Plan will fulfill your expectations. This can be done within the Windows built-In Power Options, but unless you have the window minimized at all times, It does take a number of steps to access It.
To make the job a lot easier for you, I will demonstrate how to add the Choose Power Plan option to the right-click of the mouse, exactly as per the Image above. Essentially, all the aforementioned Power Plans will be readily available.
To achieve this, I shall use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry. All that's required on your part, Is to double-click the file, follow a couple of prompts and the task will complete. Do note, that the option Is only available when right-clicking on a blank area on the desktop.
I have provided the download links to the Registry files, at the end of this tutorial. So without further delay, let's get this started.
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Add Power Plan.reg file. It will prompt to add the entries to the Registry, so hit Yes.
A message will be displayed, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Hit OK to finalize the process.
I've now right-clicked on a blank area on my desktop, and as you can see, the Choose Power Plan option Is available, with all It's respective settings. Let's test this, by clicking Power Options.
As expected, the Windows Power Options window has executed, hence all Is functioning well. Of course, you can directly choose your preferred Power Plan.
To reverse the change and remove the Change Power Plan from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove Power Plan.reg file. Hit Yes to complete the process.
The good thing about this tweak, Is that the entries are automatically added to the Windows Registry, without the need to perform edits manually. This benefits users who have little to no experience with the Registry- as any Incorrect entry can cause significant system Instability, and/or loss of functionality to the operating system.
Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
