how to adjust screen brightness HP Envy 23se-d494?

Does anybody know how to dim or adjust screen brightness for the HP Envy 23se-d494 all-in-one pc?  It is sometimes to bright for me especially in low light conditions.  Please help, thanks.

In Windows 8 and 8.1

Invoke the search charm and type in brightness or click on the PC settings icon

If the control by the operating system is available, it will be seen as in the following image

If available, the ability to control screen brightness will be via the slider as seen in the folllowing image. The image is from a touchscreen enabled HP product loan Spectre 13 ultrabook with Windows 8.1. Yours should be the same.

Are the touchscreen features available or are you using  only the keyboard and mouse?

Hi again, I tried to download intel drivers but it woudn't let me.  It says it has to come from HP so that's what I did, I updated my graphics driver using the ones in the HP website but nothing happened, I still could not adjust the brightness. It still says "windows cannot adjust the brigtness of this display".

Hello Rockyj,

 

I understand that you are having issues adjusting the screen brightness on your computer. If you are running Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 you can also ajust the screen brightness by following the steps set out below:

 

Step 1. At the Tiles Menu type "control panel"

Step 2. Click on Control Panel

Step 3. Click on System and Security

Step 4. Click on Power Potions

Step 5. Click on Change plan settings (which ever is associated with the plan you have selected)

Step 6. Move the horizontal sliders from left to right to either increase the brighness or decrease the brightness.

 

I hope I have answered your question to your satisfaction. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums. Have a great day!
