    How to Enable or Disable Adaptive Brightness in Windows 10


    Displays (especially on laptops and tablets) may utilize ambient light sensors to detect surrounding levels of light.

    The adaptive brightness feature in Windows monitors ambient light sensors to detect changes in ambient light and automatically adjust the display brightness as needed to match surrounding lighting conditions.

    While adaptive brightness is useful to help save battery life, it may at times cause your display brightness level to be too dark.

    This tutorial will show you different ways on how to enable or disable adaptive brightness in Windows 10.

    • Option Two: To Enable or Disable Adaptive Brightness for Current Power Plan in Command Prompt

  3. How to disable adaptive brightness by default

    I followed the steps listed in the linked thread, and still no change. I don't believe that the linked thread is dealing with the same issues that I am dealing with.

    Furthermore, I do not understand why I would ever need to change registry settings, or restore default power settings. To be clear, this isn't a bug that is causing my brightness to be lower than it should, this is obviously an intended feature of
    Windows to enable adaptive brightness so that the screen adapts in differently lit environments.
    Either I'm wrong, and this isn't an intended feature (in which case, why is it there at all), or I'm right and this is an intended feature, and my point
    still stands: Why can't I disable adaptive brightness and leave it disabled permanently?

    I'm quite disappointed that something as crucial as the brightness of one's screen is not implemented correctly. This should be fixed ASAP.

    As for this thread and my concerns, I would still like to see if there is a solution that can be provided. Thank you.

  4. Enable or Disable Adaptive Brightness in Windows 10

    Adaptive brightness automatically enables

    Thanks for your reply but I already have stated that "One thing that I noticed is that after every startup adaptive brightness settings automatically enables (I tried to change it through advanced
    power option and also from services using services.msc in the run)".

    Kindly let me know why it automatically enables after every reboot and how to resolve this issue.
