How to Turn On or Off Auto-Brightness on Windows 11/10?

In Windows 11/10, it’s essential to know that automatic brightness only applies to Windows devices with built-in screens, such as laptops, tablets, and all-in-one desktop PCs. Some Windows devices automatically adjust screen brightness based on ambient lighting conditions, and some don’t. If so, these changes are based on readings from a light sensor built into your device.

Even some PCs allow automatic changes in brightness depending on what you’re viewing on your screen, which helps save battery life. It is called “content adaptive brightness control” (CABC).

If you’re frustrated with your PC’s screen automatically getting bright or dim, it’s easy to turn off. In this risewindows article, we will show you how to do it.

Depending on your Windows PC features, you may see one or two checkboxes to control these options in the Settings app.
