Add Power Options To The Right Click Menu

On the Windows platform, users can apply a particular power plan on their computer, thereby manage hardware and system settings such as the PC's display, sleep, shutdown operations and more. Each power plan can be applied according to your usability, or you can create one of your own. Wouldn't It be handy to have the options via the right-click of the mouse? In this tutorial, I will show you how to do this with Incredible ease.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. To access the power plan settings, navigate to Windows Settings > System > Power & sleep > Additional power settings, and the Power Options will be displayed as per the Image below.

You then have a choice to either select from the default power plans, namely Balanced (recommended), High performance or Power saver. Alternatively, you can configure one of your own, by clicking the Create a power plan link to the left of the window.

All this Is accessed via the Power Options, and to make It readily available, I will demonstrate how to add It to the right-click context menu. Do note, that this only applies when right-clicking on a blank area on your desktop.

To achieve this, I will be using a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry. All that's required on your part, Is to execute the file and follow a couple of prompts. I have provided the download links to the Registry files, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice. Then double-click the Add Power Options.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:
A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
I've now right-clicked on a blank area on my desktop, and as you can see, the Power Options Is available, along with It's respective settings. Let's test It, by clicking on Power and Sleep Settings as arrowed below.

Step Four:
As expected, It navigated directly to that very setting, namely Power & sleep. Of course, the same functionality applies when clicking every other setting In the Image above.

Last Step:
If you change your mind and want to remove the Power Options from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove Power Options.reg file, and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:
The good thing about this tweak, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry, without the need to manually apply changes. Moreover, It's just as simple to reverse the process, by executing the file as per the Image above. It doesn't get any easier than this, does It?

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
