How to get important information and a full report on your computer's battery in Windows 10


When using a laptop, one of the most important things to keep an eye on is battery health, which can deteriorate over time or through misuse.  It is always good to be aware of this before you lose this battery and you have to buy another one, there are many programs that enable you to monitor and know a set of information about your computer battery in detail, but today we will talk about a feature in Windows 10 will enable you to know these details without using these programs.

In addition to the default settings provided in Microsoft system settings lists, Windows 10 also performs a full battery report in the background, but it is invisible to users. Here's how to get this report from your laptop battery to see if it's correct:

Before checking your computer's battery report, you need to generate it, as Windows does not make it available by traditional viewing methods. For this, you can follow these steps to show this report:

Open the Start menu and look for Command Prompt. Right-click on it and turn it on as an administrator;

 Copy and paste this action: powercfg/batteryreport/output "C:batteryreport.html"


When you receive a message that the report is ready, close the command prompt.
Note that the above report file is set to be saved at the root of drive C: But this path can be changed to any whereabouts.

By default, the best format for storing this report is HTML, which can be opened by any browser. So the next step is to access the folder where the report was saved and open the file using software for this type, such as Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.


you can select some important information without difficulty, such as the number of cycles that the battery has already passed. This actually indicates how many times the battery has been charged, with the reminder that each battery has a maximum cycle.


Another important fact is the battery capacity history. Note that the right column tells you the maximum load, while the left column tells you the maximum value you can afford. In other words, if you allow the laptop battery to be fully charged and the maximum value is not reached, the computer battery life will decrease.
