Win10 Pro Adaptive Brightness

2019-03-30, 15:04 PM

I'm on Windows 10 Pro x64 and the auto/adaptive brightness is driving me up the wall. I've been through the Control Panel and even searched for the settings for Adaptive Brightness, but it doesn't seem to be available. I've checked the Intel Graphics Control Panel and there are no settings I can find there to adjust/disable it, and the Lenovo Vantage app has nothing in it either. It's getting extremely annoying because my code IDE's use dark themes across the board and the display keeps dimming out when I switch to them and it gets super bright when I switch to a white webpage that has documentation on it.

 

Intel UHD630/Nvidia 1050Ti (419.67 DCH) with a 4K panel, the latest build of Windows10 x64 with all updates applied and the latest drivers. I understand the display is driven by the iGPU.

Solved! See the solution

It souds like have run into my nemesis, the abomination known as Intel Adaptive Contrast. See this thread for suggestions. It may be as simple as toggling it on and back off again.

I think I found the setting in the Intel Control Panel: Display Power Saving should be set to Disable.

Yes, and to be safe, if you find it disabled, switch it to enabled, hit apply, and then switch it to disabled, and hit apply. Reason: sometimes the toggle doesn't accurately show the actual current setting.
