How to Maximize Battery Life for Video quality on Windows 10?

On the latest versions of the Windows 10, you can be able to customise the battery settings on your laptop or tablet to maximise quality and battery during the time of video playback.

However, if any user doesn’t change the settings or forget to change it, then the Windows 10 will automatically maximise your device for battery life by playing High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos in Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) when your laptop or tablet is not properly plugged in. Although, if your device isn’t plugged in, and you still want the best video quality possible, the settings app also includes an option by which you can customise the experience.

Below we discuss few steps for allowing the Windows 10 to use the best video quality when playing HDR content on your computer or maximise the battery life for video quality on Windows 10. The steps are discussing below.
