  1. Thank you.

    This solves half the problem. Following these instructions to get, say, the “High Performance” power plan back on Windows 10 1903, works, but when repeating to ALSO get “Power saver” back, it rather REPLACES “High Performance”. Sigh…

    Whenever Windows misbehaves (for example, the last few weeks, I’ve had audio dropouts like never before), I may need to go back and forth between power plans, comparing and tweaking as I go, to try and pinpoint what setting might be the culprit this time.

    While these instructions make it possible to – at all – go between “High performance” and “Power saver”, a detour via the mobility center each time, to make the “other” plan visible, isn’t really feasible, as I basically need to compare the plans side by side.

  2. thanks!
