Lenovo Battery Gauge (P50)

2016-08-24, 0:56 AM

Does anyone know if Lenovo has removed the toolbar battery guage in an update?

 

If not, is there a way to get it back?  The setting doesn't exist in Lenovo Settings and the toolbar is missing from the list of availble toolbars.  I have the latest software installed, even reinstalled the lenovo dependency service.

 

Thanks!

Ed

It actually is in lenovo settings. open settings and near the bottom on the left hand side there is a gear symbol. click it and you will see where to turn the guage back on.

Thanks Herman, it's definitely missing out of the lenovo settings as well.  The toggle to turn it on is gone.

 

I think there is a Lenovo Power Gauge app that somehow got uninstalled, but there is no where to download it.  Very wierd.

Thanks for checking!  I think I figured out the problem, I installed the latest Lenovo Power Management Driver, but it does not show up as an installed apps under "Programs and Features."  Even the Lenovo Solutions Center shows it missing.

 

I just reinstalled it and still same problem.
