I know there are many questions on here regarding auto brightness/dimming, and I've been through many of them. I have a laptop (Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series) with Intel graphics. I have disabled/done the following:
- Edited Windows Power Plan settings and disabled Adaptive Brightness for both power and plugged in modes
- Edited Windows Display settings and toggled off 'Change brightness automatically when light changes'
- Opened Intel Graphics Properties and gone to Power > On Battery > and disabled Display Power Saving Technology (and even the Extended Battery Life for Gaming option)
Still, my laptop (while plugged in, nonetheless) is changing the contrast on my screen when switching between dark and light backgrounds. For instance, if I have Sublime Text open with a dark theme and I switch to a localhost website, all of my Chrome tabs are faded/washed out and it takes a few seconds for them to come back to normal.
I have referenced this question here on SU, but nothing has changed since I have implemented all of those fixes. It seems like a "feature" I still can't find the setting for, because it is consistent and not at all buggy -- just ugly!
I feel like I'm chasing my tail trying to find more settings that would control this. Thanks in advance.
