How to Enable Energy Saver Mode on Chrome?

Google Chrome is one of the most popular and preferred browsers available these days. However, being so popular among users comes at a price.  In comparison to other browsers, Google Chrome requires a lot of system resources and uses the most battery. Google has introduced Energy Saver Mode as a new option to address this problem. When this feature is activated, it aids in extending the battery life of devices when it is becoming low.

When the battery is 20% or lower or when the device is unplugged, the Energy Saver feature begins conserving the power by restricting Chrome’s background activities and the visual effects (smooth scrolling, video frame rate, etc.) on websites that play videos and animated content.

You should be aware that Energy Saver is also referred to as Power Saver or Battery Saver mode.

You must modify a secret setting on Chrome’s flags page in order to enable power-saving mode. Now that we have understood the ‘why’ of it, let us get to the ‘how’ of it in this risewindows article.

How to Enable Energy Saver Mode in Chrome?

Use the following steps to turn on Energy Saver, Power Saver, or Battery Saver mode on Chrome browser:-

Step 1: Launch the Google Chrome web browser on your computer.

Step 2: Type chrome:/flags/ in the address bar and press the Enter key on your keyboard to continue.

Step 5: Press the Relaunch button if prompted.

Step 6: Next, pick More tools > Performance by clicking on the Menu button (three vertical dots) in the top right area.

On a side note, the Energy Saver option may not be available on your device or your browser may not be up to date if you don’t see it under the Performance tab.

Step 7: At this point, make sure the toggle for Energy Saver is turned on.

Step 8: Next, pick one of the choices offered beneath the setting. You can choose the option that says “Turn on when my computer is disconnected” or “Turn on only when my battery is at 20% or lower.”

The energy-saving icon should now be visible in the upper-right corner of your browser.
