Access Windows Mobility Center in Windows 10

Windows Mobility Center is a special location in Windows Vista and above that allows you to control some of the settings in the operating system that are specific to the notebook computer users. For example, you can control the screen brightness, check the battery charging status, connect an external screen like your large screen TV and more. Apart from the tools included by Microsoft, the OEM (original equipment manufacturers) like Dell, Lenovo, HP, Toshiba, Sony, Samsung, Acer etc can also include their own special tools. When the OEM include their own tools, you can tell these tools apart easily because they are listed after the OEM logo and a string – “Customized by OEM” when OEM could be Acer or Dell etc. Obviously, Mobility Center is not available in the desktop computers as these computers do not need any of these features.
