This is a program that is considered to be a utilities program for Windows.

The program allows you to easily adjust the brightness of the desktop screen. One of the issues is that some users aren't sure where or when exactly to use the program. While it will adjust the brightness and the contrast of the images on the screen, it can sometimes be hard to get the hue just right for certain files and images that you're looking at especially if lighter colors are already being used.

If you don't pay attention to the program, then you'll likely forget that it's even there. The program will hide in the tray of the desktop until you want to use it, making it seem to disappear at times unless you want to change the brightness. When the program is used, you'll see that there is a purple and pink screen. There is a control that will allow you to slide the screen up and down while you're examining the brightness.

As you click on the bar and slide it up and down the screen, you'll see numbers appear that will give you an indication as to how bright or dim the desktop is at the time. All you have to do is stop scrolling when you get to the brightness level that you want, and the image will stay like that until you change it once again. This is a simple program that is ideal if you're looking for a way to easily and quickly adjust the brightness of the screen, especially if there is a certain file that you need to see or an image that is highly detailed.
