Ever been up late at night working hard at your computer screen, and think, this is really bright? I did, so I decided to search the internet for some sort of software that enables me to change monitor brightness right from my desktop. The reason I needed to use an application to do this, is I’m using a monitor that doesn’t have any buttons to dim the display like a laptop would have.
Want to Change Monitor Brightness Without Using its Buttons?
Anyway, you’ve found this post, because you’ve got a similar problem and looking for a way to dim your screens brightness.
How do I change monitor brightness?
There are two applications that allow you to change monitor brightness right from your desktop. I can’t say these will work on all displays, but they are free, so if you’re interested, try and see.
First up is Display Tuner, it is pretty cool, but the downside is that it doesn’t work on ever display. If it does work on your display, you’ll be able to adjust your brightness, contrast, colour, and a few other settings. One thing I love is that you can set individual profiles and use a hotkey to activate them. Ideal if you need different monitor brightness settings during the day.
Second is ScreenBright, it does what it needs to and it does it well and easy. Let’s just say, all you need to do is download ScreenBright, no need to install. Run ScreenBright and it will let you adjust brightness, contrast, even colour temp.
Reading the descriptions of each software, the claim that your monitor does need DDC/CI support for them to work properly. Even if you monitor does support DDC/CI, there is still a probability that your monitor will not work, so I cant guarantee anything, but you know what, no everyone can be right about every little single thing, so try them both and see which one works well for you.
