    Hi!

    Can anyone tell me if there's a way to display all the available power plans (default + custom made) while using Windows 7 when you click on the battery meter in the taskbar, instead of the 2 which are displayed by default? This wasn't a problem with Windows Vista as all the plans were visible, but they aren't with Windows 7. Dunno why though. So is there any way I can see all of them when I click the battery meter in the taskbar?

    Thanks a lot!

    But still, if there was a workaround, it'll be helpful. :cool:

    Users have complained, but Microsoft has not listened.

    Did you check in GPO? Never know, it might be there.
