Microsoft Windows 11

Like so many others before me, I'm struggling to turn off focus mode. This is a function that dims the background while leaving in-focus windows bright. It's awful and I hate it and I want it gone.

I've researched for hours, and every answer boils down to changing a setting in HP Command Center. I did not have this app, so I grabbed it from the Microsoft Store. When launched on my machine, it has a System Information tab (read only) and an About tab (also read-only). There are no settings options in this app when run on my Pavilion Gaming Desktop.

So... any chance someone has a solution that doesn't involve the HP Command Center?

hi

curious, if you didn't have this originally, then it must have some other cause
I tried, and I have the same thing no option
https://apps.microsoft.com/store/detail/hp-command-center/9P92N00QV14J?hl=en-us&gl=us
so I searched, and we are talking about a laptop, so I think that's why it may not work with a desktop computer

The Spectre x360 14 offers a host of intelligent features and software capabilities designed to seamlessly adapt to a user based on the activities and apps being used at a given time. These features include:

  • Intelligentially manage power management to optimize productivity with smarter features  in-bag detection using Intel® Dynamic Tuning to avoid overheating or battery drain when the device is in a bag, and quick hot key access on the all-in-one keyboard for HP Command Center to easily select features like Power Saver mode. And help protect the health of the battery with the Adaptive Battery Optimizer.
  • Focus Mode for multitasking and productivity, dimming the background apps not in use while keep the app currently being used bright. This also helps battery life by dimming other parts of the screen that are not in use, which is also great for privacy.
  • AI Noise Removal23 with Intel® GNA 2.0 for intelligent adaptive noise cancellation, to mute any background noise automatically across communication apps Microsoft Teams and Zoom and audio outputs and inputs like speakers, headphones, and the mic.
  • Smart Sense in HP Command Center, which optimizes and adapts the system for performance, acoustics, and temperature automatically, based on the application being used and the placement of the laptop.
  • Auto Color, the newest setting in HP Display Control, will automatically switch to the optimal color space for the best viewing experience based on the content being viewed.

I did have this originally. I've only had the computer about two weeks.

sorry, i don't understand what you mean
Are you talking about the problem, not the software?

"I did have this originally."

first :

" changing a setting in HP Command Center. I did not have this app, so I grabbed it from the Microsoft Store."

Sorry, I misunderstood what you meant by, "curious, if you didn't have this originally, then it must have some other cause". I thought you meant the problem. The software did not come installed on my PC. The problem was there from day one.
