My battery is draining very quickly when on normal use

HP envy 13-ab007na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The problem I am having with the laptop is that the battery is draining a lot quicker on standard use. Also, another problem is that the battery drops from 100% down to 92% is literally 5 minutes. Is there any solution to this?

So, dropping down by 88% (namely down to 12%) would take 55 minutes (eleven times as long as 5 minutes).

 

How old is the computer? the battery?

 

What is running in the "background" (virus-scan? Windows Update? Disk Defragmenter/Optimizer ?)

 

Open the Windows "Task Manager", and click to the "Performance Tab", and "measure, measure, measure".

 

Also, the free 'WinPatrol' software is a very-good "measurement" tool.
