Is there a way of increasing / decreasing the brightness of a laptop monitor software based I mean not via a control on the edge of the screen.

Thnak you for reading this.

Hold down the Fn Key and F7 to increase Brightness and Fn and F8 to decrease.

Thank you both for those answers; at the moment I don't have the laptop but have been looking at one. It seemed to me rahter dull. In the end I gave up on it.

in a showroom may not look so bad in a normal environment - shop lights can be very bright. Most new machines will have good displays, and it's not really a problem to use the hardware control to alter the brightness levels.

Forum Editor that was my impression there was a lot of flourescent lighting and I was not sure what was the cause of the dullness on the screen. However I have gone off that machine for the time being.
