On Laptop keyboards, manufacturers will often integrate a keystroke to increase or decrease the screen brightness as well as volume.

Fn the same keys that the manufacturer has specified.
For example, DELL Laptops will use the combination
Fn + Mũi tên lên hoặc xuống To increase or decrease the brightness, the ThinkPad Laptop will be the combination
Fn + F5/F6 as shown above.
You just need to pay attention to find this button to increase or decrease the brightness right away. Some machines have turned off the Fn feature on the keyboard, then you can press the key with the light / dark function.
For those of you using a PC or Laptop connected to an external monitor, you can use the built-in brightness and increase key cluster right on the screen body, or use its dedicated software to increase or decrease!
#2. Use the Windows 10 Action Center
Action Center is the place to “store” the notifications you have not seen and also contains a lot of shortcuts to enable functions available on Windows 10.
Of course, you can completely use it to customize the screen brightness in Windows 10.
Usage is very simple, first click on the Action Center icon in the bottom corner of the screen, or use a key combination.

You will immediately see a brightness adjustment bar at the bottom, the more you drag to the right, the brighter the screen, whichever is the same, drag the mouse back and forth to find the level of brightness you feel suitable.
If you do not see this bar, it may be because you are using an too old version of Windows 10 or because you have not yet expanded the menu of the new Action Center.
To expand you do the following: Open Action Center by combination
Windows + A => then click on
Expand is done.

But of course there is still a way to activate Windows Mobility Center for PC if you follow my previous tutorial!
