Samsung 220wm monitor brightness and contrast adjustment

I am unable to adjust the brightness and contrast on my monitor. I press the appropriate button on the frame, but I can't place the cursor on the drop down window. The cursor seems to slide under the window, rather than reaching the items within the window. I received the monitor for Christmas, but there was no manual with it. What can I do?

Umm... you are NOT supposed to use mouse !!
These are on-screen displays and you can use the other buttons (up down and select) to navigate through and then to change the values !

Not brightness, but size of screen. Unless I make screen smaller with top box, I cannot see the side pointer. I tried adjusting with no luck.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.


On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.



Thanks....

To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer.

To turn adaptive brightness on or off

Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.


Under any plan, click Change plan settings.

Click Change advanced power settings.

In the list, expand Display, and then expand Enable adaptive brightness.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is running on battery power, click On battery, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is plugged into an outlet, click Plugged in, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

Click Apply. Click OK.
