Everyone loves a blazing fast performance on their devices, be it their Android, iOS, or any other devices, and Windows 10 users need it the most. Every update on Windows 10 either has some flaws or sometimes it is ended up entirely. Well, this post is for Windows 10 users, especially for those who want to get better performance from their Windows 10 PC.
A while back, Microsoft added a new power plan named “Ultimate Performance“. Let’s see how you can enable it and make it visible in power plan settings.
To enable the ultimate performance mode, it just takes a few minutes for you, but before that let’s see about power plans on windows 10.
Basically, a power plan is a collection of hardware and system settings that manages how your windows 10 PC will use power.
You can also create your very own power plan and use it, change when computer sleeps or choose when to turn off display.
More about power and sleep settings here.
Let’s see it.
How You Can Enable Ultimate Performance in Windows 10
- Step 1: Open your settings tab and now go to system
- Step 2: Now go to power and sleep option
- Step 3: Now the power and sleep tab opens and select the additional power settings option
- Step 4: Now the power plan tab opens, this is where we will be enabling ultimate performance. There will be multiple power plans and you need to select ultimate performance and it’s done.
Yes, you have finally enabled the Ultimate Performance mode on your Windows 10 PC.
But what if it is not visible in your power plans settings window?
You can add it using a command prompt or powershell. First, close both the power plan and the settings window and open the command prompt.
To open the command prompt, go to search box and search cmd and make a right click and select run as administrator.
Now just copy paste the below string in command prompt and hit enter.
Command Prompt or PowerShell (Copy/Paste):
powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61
Now exit command prompt by typing exit.
It’s done. Now you can see the ultimate performance in power plan windows and enable it. To remind you ultimate performance favors performance over battery power and it is recommended to keep the battery plugged-in as ultimate performance is battery demanding.
