    Hello, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Does any of this below apply to your situation?

    Adjust Screen Brightness in Windows 10

    Brightness settings will not be available for an external monitor connected to the computer. You will need to use the physical brightness button on the monitor, or change from the on screen menu for the monitor.

    Brightness settings will only be available for a built-in display like on a tablet or laptop. If supported, you can adjust screen brightness of an external monitor connected to a desktop computer in the NVIDIA Control Panel.

    If you do not see any of these brightness settings or they are not working, be sure you have the correct and latest graphics driver installed.

    If you do already have the latest graphics driver installed, then uninstall and reinstall the driver to repair it.

    @sdgeturhre

    You probably have an On Screen Display on your monitor. You should be able to set the brightness there.






    And as @Brink said....if you have an Nvidia vid card, you can use the Nvidia Control Panel to adjust brightness.

    Are you referring to a desktop or laptop? None of my my desktops can adjust monitor brightness from native Windows OS - only laptops can do that.
