Microsoft’s Windows 11 operating system has several features and functionality, allowing users to customize the computer to suit their needs. In addition to allowing users to make changes, the operating system also includes several options that automatically adjust the settings on the device.
One of these options is for the brightness of the screen or display, which can be manually adjusted by the user or change the settings so that the system automatically adjusts the brightness based on the lighting conditions or optimizes the battery.
If the environmental sensor is present on the device, Windows 11 can adjust the brightness according to the lighting conditions and according to the content displayed on the screen.
In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to easily enable the Auto Brightness feature on Windows 11 computers so that the system changes the screen brightness based on the lighting conditions.
How to enable automatic brightness settings in Windows 11
Step 1: Open the Settings application on your computer by pressing the Windows + I keys on your keyboard. Alternatively, you can also search for the Settings app from the taskbar and click on the app from the search results.
Step 2: When the app opens, select the “System” option from the left sidebar.
Step 3: Next, select the “View” option from the right pane.
Step 4: On the Display Settings page, in the “Brightness and Color” section, click the Brightness setting.
Step 5: Select or check the “Automatically change brightness when lighting changes” checkbox and check the “Help improve battery by optimizing display content and brightness” option.
That’s all. After following the step-by-step guide mentioned above on your Windows 11 computer, the Auto Brightness feature will be enabled and the system will automatically adjust the brightness of the display or screen according to the lighting conditions.
If you don’t see the option to automatically change brightness based on lighting conditions, your device doesn’t have an ambient sensor and this feature isn’t available for your computer. However, checking the other option will still work and the brightness will be adjusted on your Windows 11 computer.
