SwitchPowerScheme (shell extension utility)

Switch Power Plans Quickly via Desktop Context menu

Switching power plans require you to open Power Options applet from Control Panel or from Windows Settings app. In the Power Options applet, you can choose one of the three options — Balanced, High performance and Power saver, or you can create your own custom plans. There are Lots of methods to switch power plans but Switching power plans multiple times a day is time consuming. We have created a small Portable Application "Switch Power Scheme" to simplify the whole process.

How to use Switch Power Scheme

1. Download and unzip it then run appropriate exe file (x86 or x64). It has minimalistic interface.

All your current power plans will be listed on the GUI

2. To Switch between them just choose one and use "Apply Power Plan" Button that's all. You can also Add all your power plans to your desktop right-click menu. Just click "Menu" button and choose "Add to context menu" feature then right click your desktop to Switch Power Plans via the Right-click menu.

Windows 10 Settings UI will ultimately replace Control Panel in the near future. Switch Power Scheme application may come in handy at that time, especially.

@klon: as it is a program post to "Submissions" forum and in order to enhance future retrievability, may I suggest you change it's subject to something along the lines of "Program name (main function/feature)"?

In the present case, it would be something like "SwitchPowerScheme (shell extension utility)". The post body is clear enough on the program's use not to require any Subject plugs.

Thanks in advance.

You might have some reasons to switch between power plans for example ;

1. You can choose “High Performance” power plan to increase FPS while playing a Game
2. When the laptop battery is low , You can switch to the “power saver” plan and make the battery last longer.
3. In summer, you can create your own power plan to reduce the CPU frequency and avoid the laptop from getting hot.
4. You can create a special plan to prevent the computer from going to sleep during the download.

Switching power plans multiple times a day is time consuming. We have created a small Portable free Application “Switch Power Scheme” to simplify the whole process.
