Dim the whole screen.

- Change the brightness by selecting a `% in the tray menu.
- Or use the hotkeys Ctrl++ and Ctrl+-.
- Change hotkeys using Settings in the tray menu.
- Doesn't work properly with video windows.

Could be used for nighttime map reading if your laptop is missing dimming controls.

  1. First of all, Thank you for your great program.

    This is great program but I can’t select the monitor if I use the multiple monitors.

    Could you update that?


  2. Many thanks – this is very simple and very useful program!

    I use serveral shortcut-hotkeys in Windows 10 but they does not work if DimScreen is running.

    I have a program-shortcut on my desktop which I can start by pressing the key-combination [CTRL]+[ALT]+[S] (which I defined via shortcut properties peviously). This works perfectly, but only if DimScreen is not running. Is there any global shortcut/hotkey/keycombo override within “AutoHotkey”?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Greetz, Mike šŸ™‚
