Miniature screen-brightness controller
Adjusting the screen brightness on a laptop is required in order to avoid your eyes from being affected due to the contrast between the screen and the environment light.
On some laptops, this might be easily done using the dedicated keys, while others don't come equipped with this option. If this is the case with your laptop, you can perform this operation by clicking on the 'Power' icon in the system tray or navigate to the 'Power Options' section in Control Panel.
An application such as Miniature screen-brightness controller can save you this effort by helping you conveniently change the screen brightness also from the system tray, but without having to wait for the 'Power Options' window to load.
Once launched, this lightweight utility functions in a similar way to the volume adjustment icon. It places itself in the system tray, allowing one-click access to adjusting the brightness. If the program cannot start or does not work properly, you are advised to check that the display drivers are up-to-date.
The higher the brightness, the more power is required to keep your computer running, so you should pay attention to this when your laptop is running on battery.
The majority of laptops have brightness control options on their keyboard. For all the others, Miniature screen-brightness controller makes it very easy to perform this operation without wasting time searching for the dedicated option in the Control Panel.
