    Changing brightness is no longer smooth with function keys on 1903

    I was forced to update to Win10 1903 today from 1809 by Windows and after updating I encountered a bit of an issue,

    changing the brightness now isn't as smooth as it was before with the function keys as seen here

    in comparison,

    changing the brightness with the function keys used to look something like this

    I don't know if it's an installation issue or if Microsoft changed the behavior of how the brightness works but

    I'm hoping to see if there's a fix for this because it's really annoying me for a number of reasons

    Hi, There's a the slider for brightness at the bottom of the Action Centre (build 1903).

    If you'd be prepared to consider an alternative... how about smooth control of brightness using your scroll wheel?
    Press a key, plus scroll, and adjust your brightness.

    The key and the steps are your choice.

    Oh, and it can adjust volume similarly.

    Works nicely on my Lenovo Thinkpad, where the Fn key steps for brightness are a bit harsh.
