In this video, author Brian Culp identifies the command-line tool used for configuring power policies and performing administrative tasks such as exporting power settings to a file, which can then be deployed to other computers throughout the network. The command-line tool is called powercfg.exe, and Brian leads viewers through several example of its possible use.
- [Voiceover] Windows 10 includes a command line tool…which can streamline deployment of power plans…throughout your network, so as you might expect,…it can be used to manage power settings when the…graphical interface is not available,…in other words, the control panel.…So, this is something that is a little bit more of…a concern for an administrator when you're…deploying policies, and therefore, you can…expect to see maybe a little bit…more emphasis on the 697 exam.…The tool is called PWRCFG.exe.…

Now, you can run several of the parameters of…PWRCFG without administrative privileges,…but there are some you will need administrator…
