How to Enable or Disable Eco Mode for App or Process in Windows 10

A process is an instance of a program that is being executed. Each process running in Windows is assigned a unique decimal number called the process ID, or PID.

Starting with Windows 10 build 21364, the Task Manager has a new experimental feature in this build called “Eco mode” which provides users with an option to throttle process resources. It will also help identify apps that are already running in Eco mode. This feature is helpful when you notice an app consuming high resources and would like to limit its consumption so that the system gives priority to other apps which will lead to faster foreground responsiveness and better energy efficiency.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Eco mode power throttling for a process in Windows 10.
