If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably found yourself in situations where you can’t seem to get the screen brightness high enough.

How to Make Laptop Screen Brighter Than Max?

There are a few ways to make your laptop screen brighter than its max setting. One is to change the power plan settings on your laptop. Another is to use a keyboard shortcut. Finally, you can use a brightness app to adjust the brightness level.

Change Power Plan Settings

If you want to make your laptop screen brighter than its max setting, you can adjust the power plan settings. To do this, follow these steps:

1) Open laptop control panel. If you’re unsure how to do this, search the laptop’s desktop for “control panel” and open it when it pops up. You can also press “Windows Key + X” to get an option that says “Control Panel.”

2) Open laptop “Power Options.” The laptop control panel should look like the one in the picture below. If it doesn’t, you may have opened the laptop’s power manager instead. Don’t worry. You can get to Power Options from here too. If so, skip stepping 3.

3) Open laptop “Choose or Customize a Power Plan.”

By default, there should be one laptop power plan already set up. It probably says something like “Balanced” next to it.

4) Click laptop Change Plan Settings.

5) Scroll down and find laptop “Change Advanced Power Settings.”

6) When the new window pops up, scroll down until you find the laptop “Display.”

7) Under laptop “Display,” change the setting for “Maximum Brightness” to something higher than what is currently set. I usually set it to around “250%.”

8) Click laptop OK.

9) Restart the laptop.

Now your laptop screen should be brighter than its max setting!

Use a Keyboard Shortcut

If you don’t want to change the laptop power plan settings, you can use a keyboard shortcut to make your laptop screen brighter. To do this, follow these simple steps:

7) A new window will pop up. Click the “Advanced” button.

10) Click laptop OK.

11) Restart the laptop. Now your laptop screen should be brighter than its max setting!

Use a Brightness App

Another way to make the laptop screen brighter is to use a laptop app. There are quite a few laptop apps out there that allow you to change the laptop screen brightness without changing any system settings. I recommend using the laptop “Screen Filter.” It’s free, easy to understand, and really useful!

All you have to do is install a laptop Screen Filter on your laptop and run the laptop screen brighter is by using a laptop brightness app. You can find a few laptop brightness apps online. If you want to use one, just follow the steps below:1) Open the laptop control panel and go to laptop “Power Options.”

FAQs:

Q: Will making my laptop screen brighter affect my battery life?

A: It can, but it really depends on the laptop brightness level you are changing it to. If laptop screen brightness is increased to laptop 100% or laptop 150%, it will definitely affect laptop battery life. The more laptop screen dims, the less laptop battery power it uses. Of course, there is no ideal number that fits everyone because everyone’s laptop brightness settings are different.
