Hold down the <Fn> Key on the bottom left side of your keyboard, then press either the <Arrow Down> or <Arrow Left>. In most cases it's the <Arrow Down> key, like on my e1505. If it doesn't work, then I would look in the control panel for Dell QuickSet. It will have options for power management, including display brightness.

If all else fails, just search in the control panel for Power management or Power Options.

If you look at the function buttons for example f1- f12.
there should be symbols in a light color. at the same time there will b a function key on your keyboard usually has the letters (fn) you hold this button down while pressing those other function buttons they all do something different so look for one that looks like a pics of the sun.

Why is my screen sooooo bright? Over time, the screen has gotten very bright, I don't know how to fix the problem and would appreciate some help.


To adjust the brightness of LCD screen, hold down the FN key, repeatedly press the arrow keys to increase brightness. Or, hold down the FN key, repeatedly press the arrow keys to reduce the brightness.

How do I adjust brightness on my Dell Latitude D6...


Look for a key labeled "Fn" (blue lettering) on the lower left side of the keyboard

Hold the "Fn" key and then use the Up/Down arrows to adjust brightness.

If that doesn't work, reboot your laptop and get into the BIOS. There is a screen for brightness. I don't recall how it is labeled, but it's one of the last pages as you cycle through the BIOS options.
