Ok, l have received the new battery and had it on charge all last night but to my chagrin find the Xfce PowerManager is still showing the battery icon on 2 of the  3 green bars and stating it is charging but constantly shows at 59% charge. I want this to indicate 100% when it is at full charge. After reading the HELP documentation is still leaves me confused. Question..how can l get the "Battery Icon" to illustrate 3 green bars and show a 100% charge? Which l can relate to.

This has confused the hell out of me. have you tried a reinstall of Peppermint? I don't know why you're getting just 59% and I know it sounds daft but you're not getting mixed up with the WIFI indicator? I'm sorry for asking and not trying to make you sound as if you don't know what your doing, but I'm dumb founded as to why it's only reading 59%? As you have a brand new battery installed the indicator should be telling you when you hover the mouse over it, how long till full charge. Something just ain't right here?  :-\
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

Hello @windrose ... looks like you figured out how to utilize the built in screenshot utility. In order to not post the whole page , choose "Select A Region" rather than "Entire Screen" or "Active Window." you may want to give yourself  2 or 3 second delay before capturing as well

Thanks Spence..l was trying to figure out how to incorporate the Spoiler function but was not certain how l was to insert the hyperlink. Should the Spoiler be activated and then insert the link between the slashes?

The spoiler function is only for extremely long sections of code... not photos nor hyperlinks  @windrose

Basically, the Spoiler is a courtesy to other forum members... if the code you are posting is more than a few lines,  use that so other forum readers who aren't searching for similar issues may quickly scroll on by...

I seem to have an issue with the XFce Power Manager in that it never really allows the battery to be charged beyond 59% and l do not see any way to adjust the settings to allow a full charge...new to the machine.

Hello @windrose... I got many hits on a search for lenovo batteries not charging fully... https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/troubleshoot/LPT000249 The XFCE power manager isn't a powering utility in itself, but merely displays the laptop's batteries status. You may want to check your particular model against the support on the lenovo site.
