    Microsoft basic display adapter missing / No brightness slider


    Hi,


    I bought a desktop computer with a MSI monitor a week ago and I realized that the Basic Display Adapter does not appear in the device manager, instead I only have the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080.


    I might be wrong but I think that is the reason why the brightness slider is missing from the Display Settings.


    Is there any chance of installing the driver manually?


    Thank you.

    :)

    Missing brightness Icon in the windows 10 action center.

    I have tried the suggestions listed as well with no luck. There is no slider showing like they show in the link at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...d4-a109-221bd8a32fca/change-screen-brightness

    and I have no light icon in the notifications section of windows 10 either.

    I have even tried changing the display adapter driver to the Microsoft Basic Display Display Adapter and then checking for updates to that as well as the installed display adapter which is also Nvidia.

    Why isn't there any way to simply adjust the brightness or to get that icon or slider on our computers? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Is this option only available on laptops and those with desktops can no longer adjust the brightness
    or is this an issue with those that have upgraded to windows 10?
