We tell you how to use the adaptive brightness in Windows to reduce the effort that our vision makes when we spend several hours in front of the computer.
If you are like me, and you spend more time in front of the screen than sleeping, you will know that if you do not configure the screen well you can end up with a major headache, in addition to red and sore eyes.
There are many methods to avoid this, but perhaps you did not know that Windows includes its own functionality to adapt the brightness of the screen depending on the ambient light. Now, whether it is appropriate for you or not is something that you should check for yourself.
Looking for a way to rest your eyes while using the computer
Because adaptive brightness is one of the main culprits that when we use a laptop sometimes the screen turns black. That’s because the way Windows detects and applies changes to brightness is not appropriate at times, and it ends up practically turning off the screen in some situations.
However, there are also users who have noticed an improvement in sight when using this functionality, especially if they use the laptop before bed. So the best thing you can do is check if you have it activated and try it for a while.
Also, it should be noted that you cannot always activate this functionality; it depends a lot on if you have the right hardware, and if you use a desktop computer, it may not be compatible. On the other hand, if you use a laptop, you probably already have the necessary sensors to make it work.
How to set adaptive brightness in Windows
Once we have made that clear, how can we set the adaptive brightness? It is quite easy, we just have to follow these steps:
This is a very simple trick that can help us take care of our eyesight, but there are also other specialized applications in that, such as f.lux, which changes the color temperature of the screen throughout the day. At Omicrono we have already talked about this type of application, and it seems that it is not clear if they make a difference, but at least we can try it on our own.
