  1. Windows 10 How to dim display


    Trying to figure out how to set my screen to dim after x time idle but I'm not seeing a way to accomplish this. Super annoying as my screensaver is the same brightness as my active screen at night. The old "dim after" power settings under display no longer exist.

    display dimming

    Hi,

    There's a possibility that this issue is due to the Display settings of your device. For us to isolate your concern, we'd like to ask a few questions:

    • Is it only happening when you connect your device to Windows 10?
    • If it's not connected, have you noticed certain activities wherein the screen dims automatically?
    • Have you tried using a different HDMI cable?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    We hope to hear from you soon.

  3. Screen Display Dim

    Since I updated to the new windows 10 version, my display is quite dim. I go into settings to adjust it and it will not let me. The brightness is at full and the screen is at about 20%.

    Suggestions to fix?

    Windows 10 How to dim display

    display dimming

    I recently bought amoled tv LG 55 c6v. Windows now dims display after some very short period of inactivity. Regular "shut off display after 10 min" is not affected.

    Problem is - it only counts mouse clicks as activity, and not even all of them, could not figure out the pattern.

    And time before dimming is very short, like 1-2 minutes.

    So, while i type the message in some forum(my browser is chrome, just in case), it dims the display. Annoying as hell.

    Some apps also forbid the dimming, like movie-player or games.

    There is no display dimming options in my "advanced power settings".

    the question is - how to disable the dimming?
