I got sick of fidgeting either in registry or in command line to unhide this or that power plan setting to edit its value in Windows
dialog with advanced power settings. So I wrote this little utility to explore all power plan settings, to edit and to hide/unhide them.<br /><br />Utility is built with .Net 4.5 and uses only power management functions from Win API to do the job.<br />No reboot required after you apply changes.<br /><br />Features:<br />- Column "hidden" in main grid gets and sets the visibility of settings in the dialog with advanced power settings.<br />- Values can be edited in second grid (no need to unhide them and go to Windows power plan advanced settings dialog).
- Double click on the main grid opens regedit and navigates it to the key for that setting in “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\SubGroupGuid” - but you need to launch utility as Administrator for that.
- Double click on second grid on the column with schemes brings the dialog with advances settings with this scheme selected.
- Export and Import of settings through buttons at the bottom.
- Column “active” in second grid gets and sets currently active power scheme.
- Pressing <Ctrl>+<F> in the main grid shows search toolbar with edit field for search pattern, buttons for searching of next, previous occurrence of pattern, button for hiding of search toolbar; search is performed only in cells of “current” column; search is case insensitive; search is performed with use of regular expressions, so pattern can be either simple word/part of word/phrase or regular expression.
Interesting utility! thanks for your efforts ! If you want to write interesting technical articles on development, this resource https://grademiners.com/can help can help.
