How to Enable Efficiency Mode in Windows 11 for Any Process

Efficiency Mode boosts the overall performance of the CPU. Here’s how to enable Efficiency Mode in Windows 11 for any process or program.

Many new features have been added to Windows 11 2022 (20H2) to improve the overall user experience. One such feature is the “Efficiency Mode,” which is accessible via the Task Manager. The Task Manager allows you to manually enable Efficiency Mode for any process, program, or application.

When the Efficiency Mode is activated, Windows restricts the process’s resource utilization. This frees up CPU time and resources, allowing other apps to operate at full capacity. As you can guess, this improves the overall system performance because you are restricting a resource-hungry process or application.

The good news is that you can easily enable Efficiency Mode in the Task Manager for any process. All it takes is a simple click to get started.

So, without further ado, let me show you how to enable Efficiency Mode on any process, program, or application in Windows 11.
