    Try using these two lines of code and save as a .bat file and run, i.e. b_report.bat

    powercfg /batteryreport
    start battery-report.html

    with these lines of code I get the report as an HTML. How can I save it as a .bat file?

    Bye!

    You misunderstood.

    This should still create an html file but open it. So create a text document, put the two lines in it, then rename the file with a .bat extension instead of .txt and double click it.

    I just restore the surface. I hope that incoming updates don't destroy the system (battery life or stability).

    Sincerely, great fail from Microsoft with this update.

    Just copy the .html file to the desktop or somewhere besides the system folder and you will be able to open it then. There is some sort of protection otherwise preventing you from opening it from the windows folder.

    Also, on the microsoft forums they acknowledged the battery reporting error and are looking into it.

    Today I can't even get the powercfg /batteryreport to run :yelling:

    I've tried several things.

    I made the .bat file and when I run it I get this:

    You need to run that .bat file in admin mode.

    Browse to the .bat file, right click, and Run as Administrator.

    You don't have to do that. Swipe the right of your device to get the search feature, type cmd, press hold on cmd.exe and select run as admin.
