Using a Win8 notebook and running fullscreen software, I need a tool that shows me the current battery percentage in real time while I'm inside the fullscreen program.

Is there anything that could help me so I don't have to tab on the desktop all the time?

I can suggest the application Battery Bar and why Im suggesting is that this software provides an option to install the floating widget which I think that it matches your requirement

You can download the free version or BatteryBar Pro version which costs only $8 for a lifetime license.

Some screenshots provided here with my answer to take your decision to go ahead with this application or not :D screenshots are from the Pro Version

I downloaded the free version to check its functionality

  • Thanks for your suggestion. Could you check if the Widget is visible in fullscreen applications? Basicly a friend asked me this, he wants to play games on his laptop without cable and stay aware of the battery.

  • Mh =/ Thank you anyway. His laptop already notifies him when batterie gets low, but he wants to check it in realtime. For most other users, your solution should do well so I vote it up, but don't accept it as correct answer.
