How to change the power settings? I am running windows 10

I do not know what power settings that I am running! 800, 900, 1000, etc.

Sorry, but not understanding your question. Power is identified in percentages, 100% being the maximum, so I am a bit confused as to what you are asking. Please rephrase and we can go from there. :slight_smile:

Back when I first started some one showed me a chart across the top (of the chart) was the settings 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000, etc. I can not remember what the power settings started at, so I guessed 500. Now the column, started at the top 10%, 20%, 30%, up to 100$.
Is the power determined by the laser you have in the machine

Show us what you are talking about. Power is represented as a percentage, no matter what type of laser or the wattage output. For Grbl control systems, you need to tell this firmware how many increments are being used when adjusting the power. We recommend setting the $30=1000 and also set the same in LightBurn. - Device Settings - LightBurn Software Documentation

LightBurn nor the firmware used by your motion control board know nothing about what wattage your laser can produce. They just know that you have some number of increments defined from 0% to 100%.

Thank you!! I guess if I want more wattage I have to get a better Lazer!
