The version 22H2 for windows 11 It should be available to everyone by now, and the truth of the matter is that this update to Microsoft’s operating system brings with it a feature that was announced well in advance. We are talking about efficiency modealso known as performance mode within Windows itself.
This is a function built into the task manager that basically It is used to limit the consumption of resources by programs, applications and certain services when they are in the background; In this way, the CPU, RAM, GPU and disk usage are allocated to the applications that we are using at the moment.
Naturally this should help improve system performanceas well as to reduce battery consumption and temperature in case we are using a laptop; all this without having to resort to a third-party program or having to open the task manager to end processes one by one.
Unlike the latter method, performance mode does not kill processes completely, which could cause system instability. Instead, they are left in a state where they are given much lower priority and do not actively consume system resources. This also helps to get back to them quickly.
This is how efficiency mode is activated in Windows 11 22H2
Windows 11 efficiency mode requires activation for each application in a particular way, although it is already activated by default for certain native Windows apps, such as the Microsoft Edge browser.
Going into details, to activate it we have to do the following: open Task Manager > processes > select the application or process in question > touch the button ‘performance mode’ located in the upper right, and confirm our decision in case you request it.
We will know that it is working when the icon of a leaf appears in the status column corresponding to the application.
Again, we have to activate the mode individually for each app/service and there will be some cases where the option will not be available (such as vital processes for Windows 11). The process to deactivate the efficiency mode is exactly the same, we will only have to locate the app where we had previously activated it.
