    No brightness slider in Action Center after Creators Update


    I read that the Creators Update will offer the much-needed brightness slider within the Action Center. However, after the update, I still don't see it. Am I missing something?

    Hello DJ,

    It will be an action button instead of slider in the action center. The action button that has a star icon with 100% underneath it would be for brightness. You can click/tap on this brightness action button to change your brightness level in increments like in Option 3 of the tutorial below.

    If you want a slider google ClickMonitorDDC. Can drag system icon onto taskbar. Not the prettiest thing ever but it is handy. Wish windows had a brightness slider.

    I see the Action Center Brightness button on my laptop. It does indicates the current brightness value but it is grayed out. If I try the Settings > System > Display, the slider is also inoperative there. I can adjust the brightness with the Control Panel Power options however. I have it very often connected to an external monitor. Maybe that has something to do with it. In Settings > System > Display it shows two displays (1|2). It says "Select a display below", but that does not seem to work either.
    There is a similar issue with the "Night Light" option. Using the Action Center button, I can turn Night Light on or off. If I try the Settings > System > Display, that does nothing.

    EXACTLY! I also saw in various videos that the action center in creators update would get a volume and a brightness slider but what i have is an action centre that looks exactly the same as before, is there a registry tweak or something to enable it?

    I feel the same disappointment with the touch screen keyboard on my tablet. Having flip to a numbers screen to type them vs having them above the keyboard is lame. Same thing if you want a - or % or whatever have to flip to that screen. Android has a better keyboard then windows, that is sorry. Just like android has brightness sliders. I switched back enterprise N where I don't have any crapware installed. Even after removing things like groove music it still appeared in my search results. I'll consider updating in a few years when microsoft shows it really can deliver a decent windows experience.

    I get a brightness button in action center just like this pic which doesn't show the percentage and although it's clickable nothing happens, however i can use the slider in display settings and also adjust the brightness via function key but the onscreen brightness button in action center is not working from today, what's happening?
