Most users think that Windows 10 does not have battery monitoring capability; But by following simple steps, you can find out the battery status of your laptop.
One of the features of Windows that you may not have heard about is battery status reporting, which is a very useful feature. According to the Varge News Agency , Windows has been monitoring its battery status since it was installed on your laptop.
The battery status report is easily popped up on the screen via two CMD commands and shows how many times you have used the battery charge cycle and what the battery usage status has been like in the last three days.
In a part of the battery report, Windows estimates the battery charging status based on how it is charged, and then compares this information with the actual battery charge.
If you are curious about the laptop status of battery or have recently noticed that the laptop battery is charging weaker than before and you are worried about this, it is not bad to take a look at the laptop battery status report.
- First , open the Command Prompt tool . To do this, search for CMD in the Start menu and click Command Prompt.
- The report is displayed in the form of an HTML file; For this reason, you need to make sure that you can find it easily. To do this, type this phrase:
cd% HOMEPATH% / Desktop
The above command directs your current directory to the desktop to be available on the desktop when the report is created.
- To create a report, type this phrase:
powercfg / batteryreport
Execution of the above command executes the PowerCanfig tool and requires it to submit a battery status report. The battery report should now be available as an HTML file on the desktop.
- Double-click the file to open it in the system browser. Now you can see all the interesting information about the battery.
