I just got the HP Pavilion 27xi IPS LED Backlit Monitor at work, working on a computer running Windows 10. I'm pretty tech-saavy, but I cannot figure out how to adjust the brightness! I've tried the F9/F10 function; doesn't work. I then thought it might be an issue with the driver, so I went to Settings -> Displays -> Advanced Display Settings -> Display Adaptor Properties -> Monitor (tab) -> Properties -> Driver (tab) -> Update Driver but got the "The best driver software for your device is already installed" message.
Under the Settings -> Displays screen, there's no option for adapting the brightness and I've scoured the forums, but none of the solutions presented are working.
Should I manually install an older version of the driver software? Any other potential solutions?

Hi there @lp2016,
May the Forums be with you! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are looking for help with the brightness settings for your display in Windows 10. I am happy to help with this.
When you go to Settings > System > Display, ids there not an "Adjust brightness level " slider just above the Apply and Cancel buttons?
Otherwise you can try searching for the Power Options. When the Power Option window comes up, there should be a "Screen brightness" slider there as well.
Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Had a similar issue and downloading HP display drivers was ineffective. After feeling around the edges of the monitor for buttons I found some hidden display control buttons, they are located in the lower right of the monitor next to the power button. You have to tap on that area and then the buttons light up which allow you to adjust display settings like brightness.
Page 9 of the HP Pavilion 27xi user manual shows where the front panel controls are.
