Ok, I’m talking about the ‘Power Plans’ in Win 10 (Settings > System > Power & sleep > Additional Power Settings) . I use laptops but I believe this applies to desktops as well. I seldom use my laptops unplugged for more than 15 or 20 mins so battery life is not a big issue to me. I like performance though. According, I have always selected ‘high performance’ over the default ‘balanced’ as a power plan and that works ok. However, It turns out that Win10 has another built in but not enabled power plan called ‘Ultimate Performance’. WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS LOL. I’ve been using it for a few days now and it’s working well. To enable and try this power plan out do the following:

Right-click on Command Prompt and select “Run As Administrator”
Copy and paste the following line to the command line:

powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61

hit enter
exit command prompt
shut down the computer
start the computer
Open Settings > System > Power & sleep > Additional Power Settings.
Under ‘Choose or customize a power plan’, select ‘Ultimate Performance’

Job done … try it, if you want to squeeze out every ounce of system performance, I think you’ll like it!
