Before hitting the mission, check that battery of your laptop is charged sufficiently to last all day. There are several ways to save your battery including Battery Saver option in Windows 10. One more thing you can do is to figure out which applications are battery consuming. Below are the ways to find the battery draining applications and how to prevent them from eating up all the battery.

Finding Battery Draining Applications in Windows 10

First of all, ensure that your device is unplugged.

  1. Go to Settings, and click on System. Now, select Battery Saver for getting an analysis of the current battery life.
  2. Below the overview section, click on the (see which apps are affecting your battery) life link.
  3. In the following screen, scroll down the list and locate the programs that are consuming most battery power.
  4. You may choose to show battery use history of past six or hours or past week.

For finding more information, tap on any offending app from the list and the most helpful information is how much battery power an app is using while running in the background. You will be astonished to find out how much some of the apps drain your battery without your knowledge. When you know which apps are wasting so much power, the best option is to uncheck the option to allow Windows choose when the apps run in the background.

Another thing you can do is:

  1. Go to Settings>Privacy>Background Apps.
  2. Turn them off or go through the list and stop specific apps from running in the background.

It’s important to note that if you prevent Windows from deciding when an app works in the Battery section, it will disable it in Privacy section. Be a little cautious here because certain apps need to run in the background when you work so that you keep getting updated notifications and additional information.

If you are having a difficult time to get your device working between the charges, then finding and blocking the power eating applications is an amazing way to conserve power. Usually, apps that eat up the most battery are the social media apps such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and gaming apps.
