                  It's not located in the lower right either. If you scroll up you'll see that I pasted the information you needed.

                  Please do that.

                      Thanks but I finally figured it out on my own.

                      Here is how:

                      • System.

                      • Display, noteifications, power.

                      • Power and sleep.

                      • Additional power settings.

                      • High performance.

                      You can close this question.
