    ?: Cannot figure out how to adjust screen brightness :-o


    Hello everyone,

    I'm using an hp TouchSmart 610 All in One computer and have just recently upgraded to Windows 10.

    I have no idea how to adjust my screen brightness and was wondering if you might be able to help me. Ive tried looking for buttons on the monitor, going to settings etc. but no luck so far.

    thanks so much for your time and expertise

    best,

    Do you have any keyboard controls, often accessed via the Fn key that changes brightness up and down?

    Go to Control Panel, Power Options and there is a brightness adjustment slider at the bottom of the page.

    Right click on the desktop and click on Display settings and you will see a slider there for brightness adjustment.

    Click on the Action Center at the bottom right of your screen and there is a brightness adjustment panel there that adjusts brightness incrementally when you click on it.

    You MAY have this also: Control Panel, Windows Mobility Center and there is an adjustment there for screen brightness.

    Brightness should also be adjustable as Phil mentioned above. In my case on a Toshiba Laptop, the FN key + the numerals 3 for lower and 4 for higher adjusts screen brightness.

    Enough choices?

    I finally got it done by going to "HP My Display Touch Smart Asst." and was able to access the controls

    Thanks again and I look forward to interacting with you in the future!
