I am using a regular external monitor with a PC and would like to be able to adjust the brightness of the monitor according to daytime automatically.

So, in the morning it should start a bit darker and gradually get brighter towards midday. And in the evening it should slowly get a bit darker towards night.

How can this be achieved?


On Windows 10 (latest), try the Night Light settings:

Start > Settings > System > Display, and set Night Light.

There is no built-in way to automate what you wish. There are third party apps to do this. I have not tried these as my laptop brightness works fine natively.


  • You can also manually turn the Night Light on and off from the Quick Actions on the Notifications Center (the icon at the lower-right corner after the date & time). – Racil Hilan Nov 8 at 20:18
