How to Restore Missing Power Plan Options on Windows?

Originally published at: How to Restore Missing Power Plan Options on Windows?

On Windows 10, Power Options allows you to customize your Power Usage – as per requirements. Technically, a power plan is a set of hardware and system settings that defines how power is used and preserved by your computer. There are three built-in power plans: Balanced, Power Saver and High Performance. They can be customised…

Yes sure! Which power plan?

Fixed, thanks for the input.

Try this:

  1. Create a new Local Administrator account.
  2. Log in to the account you created and Sign in to your Microsoft account.
  3. Now your name should be represented correctly.

Let me know if that helps you.

Check the “Solution 4” it seems that the power settings have been moved

Hello, and thank you for the article. Windows 10 and 11 seem to be emulating the Apple OS nowadays … taking away much of our ability to tweak our systems by hiding the tools to do so. There was a big reason I have stayed away from Apple for decades. Microsoft may yet push me to fully embrace Linux, instead of just as a second OS on some of my PCs.

Now I cannot find and manage Link State Power Management and some other advanced power settings in Windows 11, for example. They are still there doing whatever they’re set to do, but are now hidden away from our eyes and our control. I’ll shortly be adding or modifying the “Attributes” key to “2” in each section to get all of them back. But we should not have to do this! Microsoft does not need nor deserve to be Big Brother.

Hey can you do the same to me? I think my problem is that I have the cracked version of windows 10. And it only has the “Balanced” power option. I tried all the 4 solutions above and nothing worked, it just creates more Balanced options but not the other ones. I’m so confused

Oh if you hadn’t figured the user thing out, the online account creation has a character limit - mine gets shortened to Musse (and i have to use that shortened name to login to shared folders etc on this PC)

Great job. “Solution 2: Use the Following Registry Hack” worked for me. The others did not. After which there were many duplicates which I deleted to leave one power options each. This is a LG Gram 17 17Z90N-R.AAC801 new out-of-the-box and didn’t have those options available.

Now, if only I can find a solution to why my username folder is one letter short. Microsoft’s solution didn’t work. Caused desktop folder not found so it cannot log on

The second option worked. It was tedious as promised but did the job. Thankyou

If dont work your modern standby is on you must turn it off
if modern standby is off and will dont work you must run just a dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth and when the restorehealth is running or when she is over you must run the powerplan copy command
That is the solution

did it work

Solution-1 worked for me.

Turbo, and Ultimate Performance

Hello, I found a small mistake in Soltion 1. There is an extra space in command line. It should be like this:
powercfg -import " C:Users2570pDownloadsDefault_Power_PlansPower saver.pow"
