Step 02: Next, Click the ‘See which apps are affecting your battery life’ link located just under the battery level at the top.


You’ll now see a list of all programs and their battery usage over the past 24 hours (to change the timescale, click the Time period box at the top).

Step 04: Google Chrome used 6 percent of our battery when running in the background. To restrict this, and get longer battery life, untick the ‘Let Windows decide when this app can run in the background’ option and leave a tick on ‘Reduce the work the app can do’.

Bear in mind, however, that programs you restrict in this fashion may not be able to function properly when you’re not actively using them.
