    Where is Dim Display in Control Panel?

    Hey Guys, I just got a new system , I always had in power options in control panel to "DIM THE DISPLAY" and now in win 10 there is no option to dim the display .. I thought it had to do with the Nvida driver .. or something like that ... Anyone know how to add this option? Thanks in advance!

    There was a person asking the same question in this forum some time ago.
    The only options we can find in Windows 10 is to go to Power Options and manually change the brightness slide.

    In my laptop keyboard, I have 2 keys, one with an arrowhead pointing left, and one pointing right.
    If I press the Fn key and hold > I can then adjust the brightness by pressing the arrowhead key point left for decreasing, and the other one for increasing.

    I wonder if you have similar keyboard setup.

    This ( the image on top left of the screenshot ) will appear if I use the Fn key + arrowhead key.

    I have an Acer Aspire 774Z.
    I do not have that icon at the system tray.
    I do have that #3 on Notification but it is not practical. It has to go all the way to 100% before it goes back and starts at 0.

    My Fn + Arrowhead key is the way to go, provider the user has the arrowhead keys on the keyboard.

    Along the same lines- There's also the 'Adaptive Brightness' feature that can be used / disabled. See HERE.
