Hi Ive just bought a new Dell laptop. Why is the screen a lot brighter when its run on power supply and dims when it is battery power? How do I adjust the settings so that when it is on battery only it is just as bright please? Thanks

The F keys at the top of the keypad should show on them what they do when pressed in conjunction with the Fn key

When you start up the computer you will briefly see a message which tells you which F key to press to go into Dell setup screens. You can alter the settings for battery and mains brightness levels. Set a restore point first.
