My computer (desktop PC) has started showing a battery indicator as if it was a laptop. I have tried restarting and checking for system updates to no avail.


It also seems to be confused about how much "battery" there is left.

Do you have any device that works with battery (mouse, keyboard, etc.)? Look at this: https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/eitzaf/battery_icon_incorrect_on_a_batteryless_desktop/
