    On-Battery Screen Brightness Too Dark After Win8.1->Win10 Update

    Hey guys,

    after updating to Windows 10, I am not able to get the screen brightness to 100% anymore (it is shown to be 100%, but plugging my laptop in, screen brightness will increase to maximum brightness). Screen settings are as shown below.

    Maybe anyone has an idea?

    I also tried using the command line:

    This allows me to change the brightness, however 100% is still not really 100% when on battery.

    Are you talking about when the PC is on battery the screen brightness is not max?
    If so then since you have it on 100% it should be the same but some times you will have to put down then back up the brightness when going on battery because it will auto adjust to low automatically to save battery power.
