The minimum brightness on my desktop monitor is far too bright. I need a way to reduce the brightness of my screen below the minimum. On my Mac, the app Brightness Slider worked perfectly for this purpose.
Based on the answer to this question, I tried using Dimmer, but it doesn't work properly in Windows 8. Sometimes it just dims the desktop, or the active window, and doesn't dim anything else. The result is a partially bright screen which looks totally weird.
If it matters, I really need this kind of app. If there is no such app available, is it possible that I could code it by myself, somehow? :-|
