Typically, brightness is indicated by a sun icon (filled and empty).

Typically, keyboard icons are located among the F1-F12 keys, less often they are located in other places.

Third way

If you are NOT looking for easy ways, you can use the third, slightly more difficult way.

Go to the control panel, select “System”. “Power supply”. “Power settings” (in some cases, the item is called “Setting the display off” or “Setting the power plan”). This will take you to a menu with which you can apply specific settings for your device. Including: brightness of the screen when using AC or battery, dimming the display after a certain time, putting the computer into sleep mode, etc.

It is worth remembering that in some models of laptops, as a rule, expensive ones, there is an automatic brightness control function, which in turn depends on external lighting. This feature can be disabled.

In cases where the brightness does not change, do not rush to carry the laptop to the service. The fact is that if it does not work from the mains, but from the battery, then the screen brightness may NOT exceed a certain level in order to save energy. This setting can usually be changed.

But if the brightness does NOT increase in any of the modes, this may really be due to the health of the screen.

The first way

The easiest way to start is best. In order to use it, you need 5 seconds of time.

At the bottom of the desktop in the notification area (tray) there is a certain number of icons. Find the icon in the form of a battery and click on it with the right mouse button, after which a menu will appear in which you need to select the item “Windows Mobility Center”.

A window with a lot of settings will open in front of you, including, for example, adjusting the sound and, of course, adjusting the brightness level of the laptop screen. Just move the slider to one side or the other, thereby adjusting the brightness to your liking or desire.

How to increase screen brightness on a laptop?

Users who have previously worked exclusively on a desktop PC may be somewhat surprised to start working on a laptop. One of the main features of a laptop screen is that you simply cannot adjust the brightness on it in the same way as on a regular monitor. there is no separate button or wheel for this.

At the same time, by default, the screen brightness is usually such that it can cause significant inconvenience to the user’s eyes. it is at a low level, as a rule, in order to save energy, since it is the screen that is one of the main consumers of energy.

Today I will show you how to decrease or increase the brightness on your device. I will show an example on Windows 7, although there are differences between the second operating systems, including the still popular XP. In addition, this manual is suitable for most modern laptops manufactured by companies such as Lenovo, Acer, Sasmung, Asus, Dell, Sony, etc.

What to do if the brightness up and down buttons on F11 and F12 do not work for me?

Brightness change methods

Let us immediately draw your attention to the fact that all of the steps described below were tested on Windows 10 Pro. If you have an operating system of a different edition, Some items may simply not exist for you (for example, Windows 10 Enterprise ltsb). Nevertheless, one of the above methods will help you unambiguously. So, let’s start describing them.

Windows Mobility Center

This method by default can only be used by owners of laptops with the operating system Windows 10. But there is still a way that will allow you to enable this option on a stationary computer. We will talk about this below.

  • If you are the owner of a laptop, then press the “WinX” keys on the keyboard at the same time, or press RMB on the “Start” button.
  • A context menu will appear in which you need to name it on the line “Mobility Center”.

As a result, a separate window will appear on the screen. In the very first block, you will see the brightness settings with a standard adjustment bar. Move the slider on it to the left or right, you will decrease or increase the brightness, respectively.

If you want to open this window on a regular PC, you will have to edit the registry a little.

  • Press the “WinR” keys on the keyboard at the same time.
  • In the window that appears, register the command “regedit” and press “Enter”.
  • On the left side of the window that opens, you will see a folder tree. Open the section “HKEY_CURRENT_USER”.
  • Now, in the same way, open the “Software” folder which is inside.
  • This will open a longer list. In it you need to find the “Microsoft” folder. Click on it with the right mouse button and select the “Create” line in the context menu, and then click on the “Section” item.

    The new folder should be named “MobilePC”. Next, you need to create another one in this folder. This time it should be called “MobilityCenter”.

    Right click on the MobilityCenter folder. Select the line “Create” from the list, and then select the item “DWORD Parameter”.

    The new parameter should be named “RunOnDesktop”. Then you need to open the created file and assign it the value “1”. After that, click the “OK” button in the window.

    Now you can close the registry editor. Unfortunately, the owners of the NK will not be able to use the context menu to call the mobility center. Therefore, you need to press the “WinR” key combination on the keyboard. In the window that appears, enter the command “mblctr” and press “Enter”.

    If you need to call the mobility center again in the future, you can simply repeat the last point.

    notification center

    This method is very simple, but it has one drawback. The fact is that with it you can only set a fixed brightness value. 25, 50, 75 and 100%. This means that you will NOT be able to set intermediate indicators.

      In the lower right corner of the screen, click on the “Notification Center” button.

  • A window will appear in which various system notifications are usually displayed. At the very bottom, you need to find the “Expand” button and press it.
  • This will open the entire list of quick actions. The brightness change button will be among them.
  • By clicking on the indicated icon with the left mouse button, you will change the brightness level.
  • When the desired result is achieved, you can close the “Notification Center”.

    multimedia keyboards

    This method is one of the most popular today. The fact is that most modern PC keyboards and absolutely all laptops have a built-in brightness adjustment function. To do this, hold down “Fn” on the keyboard and press the decrease or increase the brightness button. Typically, these buttons are located on the left and right arrows

    or on “F1-F12” (depending on the manufacturer of the device).

    If you don’t have the ability to change the brightness using the keyboard, then don’t be discouraged. There are other methods to do this.

    system parameters

    You can also adjust the brightness level of the monitor using the standard OS settings. Here’s what you need to do for this:

    • In the window that opens, a little above the “Start” button, you will see an image of a gear. Click on it.

    After you set the desired brightness, the window can simply be closed.

    All of the above methods are applicable mainly to laptops. If you want to change the brightness of the image on the monitor of a stationary PC, the most effective solution in this case would be to adjust the corresponding parameter on the device itself. To do this, you need to follow a few simple steps:

      Locate the adjustment buttons on the monitor. Their location depends entirely on the specific model and series. On some monitors, such a control system may be located at the bottom, while on other devices. on the side or even on the back. In general, the Mentioned buttons should look something like this:

  • If the buttons are not labeled or not accompanied by specific icons, try to find the user manual for your monitor on the Internet, or try to find the desired parameter by brute force. Please note that some models have a dedicated button for brightness control, as shown in the image above. On the second devices, the required parameter may be hidden a little deeper in a separate menu.
  • Once the desired parameter is found, adjust the position of the slider as you see fit. Then exiting all open menus. Changes will be visible to the eye instantly, no reboots after the operations done will be required.
  • If you have any difficulties in the process of adjusting the brightness, you can simply write the model of your monitor in the comments, and we will give you a more detailed guide.

    On this, our article has come to its logical conclusion. We hope that one of the listed methods will allow you to set the desired monitor brightness level. Also, do not forget to periodically clean the operating system from garbage in order to avoid various errors. If you do not know how to do this, then read our tutorial.

    Everything is led (executed by commands) by drivers, therefore if something does not work on them you should look, it is possible to update.

    So for example, if you have an ASUS laptop, then take a look at the ATK Hotkey utilities for the brightness, if they are not there, download and install.

    The bad method is that Windows can then easily return everything back. Therefore, it is better to make settings using a proprietary Windows 7 tool, that is, through the Power Supply, described at the beginning of the article.

    By the way, if you reinstall the laptop operating system to a non-native distribution, then many of the capabilities of the laptop function keys will NOT work, alas.

    Let’s look at the power settings

    For the Windows 7 operating system, click Start, then Control Panel, at the end of the list that appears, click on the Power supply link.

    Alternatively, click on the Start button and enter Power supply in the lower search bar. Click on the power supply that appears in the search result.

    At the very bottom of the window “Choosing a power plan” Move the “Screen brightness” slider to adjust the brightness (number 1 in Fig. 1, pictures are clickable):

    If the slider for Screen Brightness” is not active, that is, does NOT respond to attempts to move it, then this may mean that the laptop is not designed to adjust the brightness of the screen (laptop manufacturers saved on this), or it is worth updating the monitor drivers.

    Additional options for adjusting brightness

    How else can you adjust the brightness of your laptop? After you choose one of the power plans:

    • balanced or
    • high performance

    can be named by the link “Setting up power plans” (2 in Fig. 1). Then a window with additional parameters will open:

    1 in fig. 2. follow the link “Change advanced parameters”,

    2 in Fig. 2. click on the plus sign opposite “Screen”,

    3 in Fig. 2. open “Screen brightness”, clicked on the plus sign. If one of the numbers is named 58% (and you, of course, may have other numbers), then you can edit them and set others, more convenient and suitable for you.

    Computer literacy with Hope. How to change laptop screen brightness?

    I answer the following question: my nephew worked, the brightness of the laptop screen changed, how to restore?

    Let’s consider three options for changing the screen brightness:

    • using power supply (Most efficient option),

    Advanced notebooks may have their own advanced options for adjusting screen brightness. For example, AUTOMATIC screen brightness control. If you set this parameter, the screen brightness will be automatically increased in bright light and vice versa.

    For example, the Sony Vaio has such settings in the Vaio Control Center program.

    Choosing an option “Display”, and in it. “Automatic brightness settings” (number 1 in Fig. 4). Here you can uncheck the box next to the option “Automatic brightness control” (number 2 in Fig. 4). Don’t forget to press “OK” (number 3 in Fig. 4). So that the changes are saved if they have been made.

    Secondly, laptop models about such settings (or their absence) can be found in the instructions for this laptop, which can be in paper or electronic version.
