Learn the basics of working with the Windows Mobility Center.
- [Instructor] In this video, I want to show you how to use the Windows Mobility Center. The Windows Mobility Center is a tool that's found on laptops and tablet PCs, and it's designed to expose some of the settings that are helpful to mobile users. The way that you would access the Windows Mobility Center is to right-click on the Start button, and then you'll have an option for the Windows Mobility Center on the Start menu. As an alternative, you can go to Run and type mblctr and click Okay, and that will launch the Windows Mobility Center. As you can see, there are six different tiles on the Windows Mobility Center, and these tiles each expose one particular function of mobile computing.
The first one is the brightness tile, and what we have here is a simple slide bar that we can adjust back and forth to control the screen brightness. Next, we have the volume tile; and, as you can see, we have another slide bar, and we also have an option to mute the volume. The third tile is the battery status tile. As you can see, this particular machine has zero percent battery power remaining; and we also have an option to choose the power plan. If I click the down arrow, you can see that we have a balanced plan, a power saver plan, and a high performance plan.
The fourth tile allows us to connect to an external display. This machine isn't connected to an external display; but, if it were, we could use the Connect Display button to initiate the connection to that external monitor. On the bottom row, we have a Sync Center tile. We have a button that we can use to access the sync settings for this machine. We'll be covering the sync settings in a separate video. And then, finally, we have a tile that we can use to turn on the presentation settings. If I wanted to enable the presentation settings, I could simply click Turn On.
So that's a quick preview of the Windows Mobility Center.
