The display.exe file, also known as the Startup Notification Module, is a process belonging to the PowerChute Personal Edition application, developed by the American Power Conversation Corporation (APC). The display.exe file is used to inform the user about the current status of the currently installed UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). The system tray icon provided by the PowerChute Personal Edition can be used as a quick launch icon for its processes, including the display.exe program.

UPSs are certainly must haves for computer users. They act as a backup power supply for Computers during power outages, mainly giving users ample time to wrap up their work, save necessary files or to at least shut the computer down properly. Since these devices run on a rechargeable battery, it is only practical to have applications like the PowerChute to help monitor its status. The display.exe process, in itself, displays the UPSs remaining battery life in both the PowerChutes Interface as well as in its Tray Icon mode. In the main window, users can use the display.exe display.exe to gauge when it is time to permanently shut down the computer. The image shown by the display.exe file is colored green when the battery is still healthy, and eventually turns red when battery life is low. Like the rest of the programs that comprise the PowerChute, the display.exe process becomes inactive when the UPS is not in use.

The software PowerChute Personal Edition, which contains the file display.exe, is compatible with, and operates normally in Windows 98, 2000, XP and now fully supports Windows Vista.


This is a safe process. There is no necessity to remove this process from your system or change it in any way.
