Recently while surfing on my laptop, I was given alert by my laptop about battery low. I wanted to find how much percentage of battery is still remaining because I had some work to finished on it. But to my surprise, I couldn’t able to check it from my windows system tray. I had searched it but I could not able to check battery status from my taskbar or system tray.
