How to Be Notified When a Windows 10 Device Is Done Charging

Ads by Google

When your battery is about to die, your laptop lets you know right away. You go into panic mode, looking everywhere to find a place to charge it up, so you can keep doing whatever it is that you were doing.

But have you ever wondered why Windows doesn’t let you know when your battery is full? Perhaps you want to know so you can unplug and get back on the move, or your laptop tends to get a little hot when plugged in, knowing exactly when its full could certainly come in handy.

Thankfully, you can make Windows 10 give you a notification, and all you need to do is download a tiny script and put it in your startup folder!

First, download FullBattery.zip (IntoWindows modified to 99% full from John Howard’s original script), and extract the file to your desktop. To run the script, just double-click it from the desktop, and you’ll receive a notification when your battery is at 99% (there won’t be a notification to let you know it’s running).

If you don’t want to run it every time you turn your computer on, simply open a Run windows and type Shell:startup. Right-click on the FullBattery.vbs and click Create Shortcut. Now, put that shortcut into the startup folder you opened before, and each time you turn on your computer the script will run.

Why do you need to know when your Windows device has a full charge? Let us know in the comments!
