Windows 11 Comes With a Feature That Might Save Your Computer

Windows 11 comes with many incredible features, such as a new Start Menu, a notification centre, and a better Windows Settings app. But some of its default settings may not be that good, and you may want to have a look at the default configurations. But when you do make unrecommended changes to Windows 11, you will get a notification that suggests you revert the changes.

You can change the default power settings in order to stop the screen from turning off. You can select different preferences for the battery power use and for when it is plugged into a power source. If you set it to “never”, you will get a notification that says: The screen is set never to turn off, and this uses more power/Sleep is set to never, and this uses more power. These alerts will come with an action button, which you can use to switch back to the recommended settings.

Of course, the recommendations will not be limited to Windows 11’s original settings. The Settings app will show you a reminder when the Microsoft 365 subscription is about to expire. It will include an action button that allows you to renew the subscription.

What about the storage?

Windows 11 has a built-in feature that will warn you if your their NVMe SSD drive has hardware issues. The windows will give you enough time to copy data on either another device, or cloud storage. This feature is made only for NVMe solid-state drives, but it is highly likely to add it with support for more drives in the future.

You will get this warning through the notification centre and the Settings app — it will recommend you to back up any data on the SSD. You will also get more detailed info about the health of the storage drive.
