Windows 10, Asus Power4Gear Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an ASUS UX31A which I have just upgraded to Windows 10. Before upgrading I was able to use hotkeys to switch between different power settings (High Performance, Battery Saver, Quiet Office, etc.) and it would display a visual to let me know what the current setting is. Now on Windows 10 I can still use the hotkey to switch, but no visual is displayed. So, the only way for me to know the current setting is by looking at the current power plan in Control Panel > Power Options. Is there another way to easily see the current power setting?

  • These shortcuts are configured by manufacturers based on specific models and hardware, i'l suggest you to check with Asus on this.

  • Hi,

    I am afraid as mentioned by arnavsharma, these hot keys should be designed by ASUS and you need to check ASUS web site see if they have released new firmware/driver for Windows 10.

    In the other hand, we still can create some shortcuts to help you switch the power plan efficiently, check following article for references.
