How to Adjust Screen Brightness on Windows 11

If you have a Windows 11 laptop, tablet, or all-in-one PC, it's simple to adjust your screen's brightness. You can do it easily through the Quick Settings menu or the Settings app. Here's how.

How to Adjust Screen Brightness With Quick Settings

First, find the Quick Settings button on your taskbar. It's a hidden button found near the Wi-Fi, Speaker, and Battery icons in the top-right corner.

Once you click on the Quick Settings button, a menu will appear. Look for the brightness slider, which has a sun symbol next to it. Click or tap on it, then drag the circle on the brightness slider to make your screen brighter or dimmer.

You'll notice that the sun icon gets bigger or smaller as you adjust the brightness. Once you're happy with the brightness level, you can close the Quick Settings menu by clicking outside of it or by selecting the Quick Settings button on the taskbar again.

Once you're done, close Settings. When you want to change the brightness again, go back to Settings > System > Display or use the Quick Settings menu.

If You Can't Adjust Brightness

If you're using a desktop computer with a separate monitor (not a laptop or tablet), you might notice that the screen brightness slider in Quick Settings can't be used (it's grayed out). In this situation, you'll have to use the buttons on your monitor to change the screen brightness. You can also use your graphics settings to adjust it. Look for guidance on how to do this in your monitor's user manual or support website. Wishing you success!
