    I'm using a Microsoft Surface pro (2017) , running windows 10 version 1079 .

    Now let me explain what the issue is , over the few days past I've noticed that when my surface pro is fully charged (100%) and still plugged in and i click on the battery icon it says "Plugged in, Discharging".
    To be clear the battery still doesn't fall below 100% as long as its plugged in but the notification says "Plugged in,Discharging".

    Is this an issue ? or is it the new language Microsoft uses?

    What does your device say when it's charged to a 100% and still plugged in ?

    Chargers and batteries are smart now.

    When you reach 100%, the battery stops pulling current and the charger stops pushing it - so technically you are discharging at that point. Then a trickle charge kicks in as needed to keep you topped up.

    All this is to preserve battery life. Charging adds heat. Heat is a battery's mortal enemy.
