    Brink, you're a champ, really, made my day!

    I wonder if you have an idea how I could get back the battery time estimation when I mouse-over the battery icon in the notification area?! My Surface Pro 1 told me something like " 66% 2h 35 min", the Surface Pro 3 only "66%". Ho could they kill such a feature??

    Ralph.

    Hello Ralph, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yeah, I've never figured out what made that different, and why/when it sometimes only shows a percentage instead of both.

    Here's a tutorial below to remove "Internet Explorer" from Power Options.

    It would be pointless to remove "Power buttons and lid" in the advanced settings though since it would still be available in the "Choose what the power button does" and "Choose what closing the lid does" links in Power Options.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
