    Display brightness control cannot be found

    I am using Windows 10 Pro 2004 on a Dell 270S mini-tower PC. Neither Windows 10 nor the Intel driver software provide a brightness control. The issue was also with Windows 10 1909. I have a hunch that Microsoft and Intel each thought that the brightness control would be provided by the other. I simply cannot find it.

    The display adaptor device is only described as 'HD Graphics' using Intel driver dated 16 June 2018.
    The display screen is a Dell P2212H(Analog).

    If anyone has any suggestions where to look for a brightness control, apart from the one on the display monitor control panel, I would be delighted to know about it.

    Hi, try

    for starters.

    I also use a 3rd party free utility so if I press a certain key and scroll, this adjusts the brightness.

    Then there's this:

    It should be in these places:
    1) Bottom Slider in the Notification Centre.
    2) Settings > System > Display > Brightness and colour.

    Right click Desktop > Graphics Properties...
    Intel HD Graphics Control Panel > Display > Color Settings > Brightness.

    Windows 10 mainly 64 bit

    Devices without an integral display generally do not have brightness controls readily available in the operating system - you are expected to use the controls on the monitor.

    EDIT Sometimes graphics drivers or monitor utilities will allow you to change brightness from the operating system e.g. Dell Display Manager if that is compatible with your monitor.
