How to disable automatic brightness in Windows 10

Windows 10

Convertible devices, which have plagued the market for some time, are becoming the favorite devices of users who require power and mobility in equal measure. This type of device has nothing to do with traditional laptops, not only for its functions, but by the amount of sensors that integrate such as a gyroscope, light sensor… These types of convertibles use the light sensor to measure the level of brightness that they have to show on the screen, in order to save battery life when we are in low light situations or raise the brightness to the maximum when we are outdoors. This sensor helps us enormously and avoids us having to manually modify its value according to our environment.

But if we are always using our convertible in the same lighting conditions, the light sensor is likely to be more of a problem than a mobile solution and we should deactivate it so that the brightness can be adjusted manually without depending on it. Fortunately Windows 10 allows us to deactivate it so that it is only regulated by keyboard commands well through the device's power settings.

Turn off automatic brightness in Windows 10

  • To do this, we go to the power settings, where the battery level is displayed or the icon that shows us that we are using the charger. Regardless of the power plan we are using, we must click on Change plan settings.
  • Next we go to Change the advanced power settings so that all the settings that we can establish on our PC are displayed to adjust even the smallest consumption of our PC.
  • We head up Display> Enable Adaptive Brightness. Here we must deactivate if we want to deactivate the automatic brightness if we use the battery only or also if we use the charger with the device.
