Control Monitor Brightness from system tray

Newer computer monitors, especially LCD monitors are too bright and you can not lower the brightness below a particular level using monitor settings. Even if it is possible, it is inconvenient in some cases.

A low brightness level is useful, for example to use the PC at night without getting blind if the minimum brightness level setting of the monitor is too high compared to ambience brightness.

Monitor Bright is a small and portable utility that come handy when you want to reduce monitor brightness at any low level. You only want to just unzip and run the program. You can enable / disable brightness from the system tray.

However the program has some disadvantages.

- If you want different brightness level, you need to open Monitorbright.config file in Notepad and change the value 0.4 to any other value (Although you can enter different brightness level in % by right clicking on the tray icon, but has no effect).

- And also there is no option for different preset level settings.

The freeware tool supports Windows 2000 or higher and required Net Framework 2.0 or higher. Download - Monitor Bright home page.
