    Having problems with my eyes because the screen is too bright.... is there a way to darken it please?

    My last laptop had a roll-type button to lighten and darken but this one doesn't...:Sad:

    Many thanks. Joy

    If the Ctrl (Control) key does not work try the Fn (function) key at the same time as pressing the Brightness key.
