Ever wanted to use your mouse wheel to control your notebook’s screen brightness?
BrightnessTray is a simple utility for Windows which lets you control your laptop screen brightness, right from your system tray.
Use your mouse/scroll wheel!
- Power off the laptop screen, and any connected monitors if possible.
- Sleep mode shortcut.
- Enable ‘Caffiene’ mode to keep the monitor from turning off during idle. My maths stats tutor could really use this.
- Enable ‘Autostart’ to put a shortcut in the startup folder.
- Does not work with monitors connected via DisplayLink (Windows color calibration does not work
sad days– Update: it’s now 2017 and DisplayLink say color control is in alpha)
- Doesn’t control desktop monitors (e.g. DVI cable), only internal notebook display. Check out ClickMonitorDDC instead.
