By default, when you are running a Windows 10 device on a battery, it shows you a notification popup when the battery gets very low. It is very important that this notification shows reliably, so you can connect your device to an AC power source so you can continue using it uninterrupted. If Windows 10 stops showing these notifications, it can be a serious issue especially if you are frequently working on a battery. Here is how to resolve it.
There is a special option in Windows 10 which is responsible for the low battery level which triggers the alert. Although Microsoft is merging all Windows settings with the new Settings app, as of this writing the required option is still located in the classic Control Panel applet. You can access it as follows.
- Open Settings.
- Go to System - Power & Sleep.
- On the right, click "Additional power settings".
- There, click the link "Change plan settings" as shown below:
- In the next window, you need to click the link named "Change advanced power settings":
- In Advanced Settings, go to Battery -> Low battery notification. Make sure it is not disabled. In the screenshot below, the notification is disabled:
You need to adjust it to the desired level.
This should restore your low battery notifications in Windows 10.
