Screen Dims on Full Screen

Pavilion x360 Convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


When I try to watch videos on fullscreen on a non-web browser app, like Windows Media Player, Movies, VLC, Hulu/Netflix app, etc. after a few seconds of going fullscreen, the screen colour will dull. If I move my mouse/touch the screen, the colour goes back to normal for a few seconds until I don't touch anything for 5-10 seconds. It does not happen if I watch videos on a web browser window like on YouTube, only on other apps. Also, it does not happen if the app is in windowed mode, only full screen. And it happens on battery power and on the charger.


Can anybody tell me how to disable this? I have looked in the HP graphics settings and the general display settings and can't find anything on it.
