Windows 10: Disable 10's auto-brightness adjustment capabilities?

    Disable 10's auto-brightness adjustment capabilities?


    I set my monitor to a set brightness that I want, but I sometimes see my screen dimming and brightening on its' own, even when I'm actively using my laptop. I think 10 must have some kind of auto-brightness adjustment capability, that detects lighting conditions around me and adjusts my brightness accordingly. This is acceptable if my Android smartphones do this, since I'm always on the go and in varying indoor/lighting conditions, but I'm usually stationary when using my notebook and don't want 10 adjusting the brightness to anything other than what I explicitly set it to. Besides, there are softwares that do this far better, like f.lux. My Intel graphics driver is also installed, so maybe that could be playing a factor.

    How can this aggravating, malformed "feature" be disabled?

    Thanks!

    Open Power Settings and disable the Brightness control setting in the Advanced properties. Simple 101 basic stuff.

    If it is related to GPU's driver, it can not be helped. I always set my brightness to 50% and Windows kept increasing it up, so I eventually ended up with 3%, I always reinstalled after that, because, it sure would hard to cut 1% by 50%.

    After moving to windows 10 from windows 7 I had to totally reset my monitor and GPU
    settings. Wish it was that simple, but it's clear 10 is made for phones and tablets and they
    skimped on computers.

    I have to use a high contrast theme now, everything else is either too bright or washed out.
    When you get my age you will see, you don't want this crap as your vision gets worse.

    Basic 101 stuff broken. I have nothing like that in my power setting, but then again
    mine is a desktop.

    OK see it now, they buried it good.
    Mine is set to "off", so this is no help.
