This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable showing the battery estimated time remaining for all users in Windows 11.

If you have a Windows 11 device that runs on battery power, you can check the battery status to see the estimated time and percentage remaining battery life left to know when to charge the battery.

If you only want to see the percentage of remaining battery, you can disable showing the estimated time remaining.


You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable showing the battery estimated time remaining.



EXAMPLE: Battery estimated time remaining on taskbar and Settings
