When I work in a low-light environment I like to have fine-grained control over the brightness of my monitor. When I change the brightness using the special function keys on my keyboard, it changes in steps of 10%! That’s a lot. PowerShell to the rescue!
The following PowerShell script will give you better control; it will allow you to specify the brightness as a (whole) percentage:
$brightness = 2 $delay = 5 $display = Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\wmi -Class WmiMonitorBrightnessMethods $display.WmiSetBrightness($delay, $brightness)
Converted into a one-liner it would look like this:
$b=2;(Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\wmi -Class WmiMonitorBrightnessMethods).WmiSetBrightness(5, $b)
You could run the script on a hot key. Or execute it with Run: (ctrl+r), type powershell and paste the one-liner.
