The Ultimate Power Plan in Windows 10 (also known as the High-Performance power plan) is designed to improve performance, allowing your computer to go into low-power mode faster after you open it and quickly return to your work. It’s not turned on by default because it can cause problems with some applications, particularly games, that don’t get along well with certain power saving features. However, if you’re having problems with poor battery life or slow boot times, it might be worth your while to turn this setting back on and give it another shot. Here’s how!
Why Is My Computer Slower After an Update?
Windows updates often include new features and security improvements, but they can also bring new problems. One common issue is that your computer may run more slowly after an update. This can be frustrating, but there are a few things you can do to try and fix the problem. First, try restarting your computer by holding down CTRL + ALT + DEL. If this doesn’t work, check in the Control Panel for any power plans and click Change plan settings. Then choose High performance from the list of options available on the left-hand side of the window.
The Ultimate Performance Power Plan
Windows 10 has a new power plan called the Ultimate Performance plan. This plan is designed to improve performance by maximizing processor resources and minimizing power consumption. However, this plan is not enabled by default. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to enable the Ultimate Performance power plan and explain what it does.
- Open Control Panel from the Start Menu.
- Click System > Hardware > Power Options on the left-hand side of the window.
- Choose Choose a power plan from the list on the right-hand side of the window.
- Select Ultimate Performance in the list, then click Change plan settings.

What to Do If You Can’t Access the Advanced Boot Options Menu
If you can’t access the Advanced Boot Options menu, you’ll need to use the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to restore the power plan. To do this, you’ll first need to boot into Windows RE. To do this, press and hold the Shift key while clicking the Restart option in the Start menu. This will take you to the Choose an option screen. From here, click Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Command Prompt.
Creating a Custom Performance Power Plan

- After making changes, click Apply (if changes are saved) or OK (if changes are not saved).
- Your computer will now use this new custom-performance power plan instead of the default Balanced option.
