How to see which apps consume more power or battery in Windows 10


Thanks to a new function included in Windows 10 October 2018 Update we can see the energy consumption of each application and process running

Especially when we are working with a laptop and at that time we do not have access to a plug, to know the energy consumption of each of the applications and processes that we have running on Windows 10, it can be basic to try to save battery by closing those elements that consume more, if possible.

So in these lines we are going to show how you can check the energy use of the applications that are currently running on Windows 10 . Needless to say, this is something that is going to be very useful, as it will help us check which applications and processes consume more energy , so they deplete the battery .

And it is that at the same time you have to keep in mind that high power consumption implies an impact on the use of the CPU, GPU and hard drive of Windows 10, so that the performance of the computer can be seriously affected.

Therefore and in order to check the energy use of processes and applications in Windows 10, we will have to take Hand of the System Task Manager itself. Of course, we must bear in mind that this is a function that Microsoft has incorporated in the most recent update , we refer to the October 2018 Update.

Check the energy expenditure of Windows 10 apps and processes

At the same time we should know that this Task Manager does not show the use of energy in a percentage or through some graphic , as it informs us of consumption saying if this is “ very low ”, “ low ”, “ high ”, etc. This is something that is shown in one of the columns to the right, next to the name of each process and application running, specifically in the call “ Power consumption ”.

Therefore and for all those who do not know, to be able to see this interesting data in Windows 10, the first thing will be to make sure that we have the version installed 1809 or October 2018 Windows 10 Update . Then, in order to access the aforementioned Task Manager, we can press the “ Ctrl + Shift + Esc ” keys to open the window of it. Then it will be when the data corresponding to the consumption of CPU, memory, or disk , of each of the applications and system processes appear.

Now, finally we will say that to the right of all these, we can already see the new functionality that we have been referring to and that will also allow us to see the energy consumption of each program and function currently open.
