Undoubtedly, the abuse of time spent at the monitor screen negatively affects vision, and they try to convey this to us from a very early age. However, it is possible to reduce the negative impact on the eyes. The first step is to move the monitor away. Then correctly adjust the brightness not only on the display itself, but also in the room where the equipment is located.
But moving the laptop away is not always possible due to the small screen size. At the same time, the idea of using a laptop is lost - fast, mobile, convenient. Therefore, only play with brightness remains.
But everything is not as simple as it seems - too light, as well as too dark laptop screens cause the eyes to strain a lot, which will eventually lead to a drop in visual acuity.
Simply adjusting the brightness of the screen will not be enough. Without the right balance between light, contrast, room lighting, distance from the eyes to the monitor and, of course, the location of the center of the screen relative to the axis of the eyes, vision will deteriorate.
You should also remember that too clear edges will be the nexttest for the human eye.
If the picture is convenient and comfortable, it does not mean that it is set up correctly. Protect your eyes from an early age.
Features of settings in a laptop
For users of traditional monitors, a few taps on the bottom of the case are enough to adjust the brightness. Nothing complicated. But how to make the screen lighter on a laptop? There might be a problem here. Many key functions have been changed on the laptop, some are combined and have a separate switch, while others are completely rearranged to save space (for example, DEL, Fn).
For Windows OS users, the screen brightness setting interface is located in the operating system settings.
Using the taskbar
The easiest way to make the screen lighter on a laptop is to use the built-in functionality. To do this, hover over the battery icon at the bottom right of the screen and select "Windows Mobility Center". In the window that appears, select "Screen brightness" and move the slider to adjust the optimal light.
Using the control panel
A more difficult option to make the laptop screen lighter is to use the operating system control panel. For Windows 10, go to "Start" - "Settings" - "Display" and move the slider to adjust the optimal brightness in the "Adjust brightness" sub-item.
Probably the easiest way to lighten the screen on a laptopis a hotkey combination. So, by pressing and holding the Fn button in this position, you can control the brightness using the up and down cursors.
If suddenly the colors on the monitor screen become different, dimmer, or vice versa, do not panic and contact the experts. The first thing to do is to check your power settings. As a rule, a laptop can automatically adjust the light on the monitor screen to save the accumulated charge, and turn off energy-saving functions when it is connected to the outlet due to their temporary uselessness.
Night or evening mode
Another useful way to lighten the screen on a laptop, while taking care of eye he alth and sleep quality, is the function of turning off the daytime blue (cold) color and switching to warm shades.
There is a lot of controversy on this topic. But one thing is certain - the cold light gives the eyes the command "it's not evening yet, it's too early to sleep" and knocks down the biorhythms of the human body.
The developers of Windows OS introduced this function, which is located in the same screen control section: "Start" - "Settings" - "Display". Next, you need to find the item "Night light settings". Use the same slider to adjust the brightness, and automate this process if necessary.
