My previous notebook (from Compaq) always showed remaining charge of the battery (in the task bar) in terms of both % and remaining minutes. My new Gateway notebook only shows the remaining charge of the battery in % terms. I would like the battery status indicator to show the remaining charge in minutes. How does one do this in Windows XP?

Don't think you will find it as part of XP.

Its more likely to be part of the battery monitor driver peculiar to the Compaq, which added the "feature" to the icon.

If Gateway don't provide it, you may not be able to have it.

Many thanks for the useful info. I was beginning to suspect this was the case, but it's useful to have it confirmed by you.
