The illumination factor of the LCD and LED monitors of today, can be quite bright. To manage the illumination on my monitor, I use an automated utility called F.lux to manage the brightness of my monitor to match the indoor lighting. It has been a keeper on my main PC for the past couple of years.
Today, on the hunt for other monitor related utilities, I came across a very small program (<120kb) that gives you the ability to regulate the brightness of your monitor (or monitors) from the system tray. It is called PangoBright…
PangoBright is a free “screen dimmer” Windows utility for setting the brightness of your main screen as well as external monitors. You can choose which screens will be set to the selected brightness level.
After installation, PangoBright sits in the System Tray at the bottom right of your Windows screen. Just click on the red “P” logo, and the PangoBright pop-up menu appears. Scroll down to your desired brightness level (in percentage increments) and click. That’s it!
