Windows 7: Reduce brightness of Screen (Not whole screen)

Reduce brightness of Screen (Not whole screen)

I want to reduce brightness of screen. NOT whole screen but only white pixels of screen.

Or a software that can force the graphic card to show grey or light grey or any other color instead of white. And all those pixels in screen that has other color remains unchanged. Is there any software available for such purpose? Or is it impossible to make such software? so i stop searching

I have windows 7, 32 bit

White is created by every component colour (i.e. Red, Green & Blue) being displayed at maximum brightness.

If you reduce the brightness of White, every other colour will (by definition) be less bright.

isn't it possible for a software to figure out the white pixels and make it grey forcefully?. Or isn't there a way to trick the display driver to show grey instead of white color on screen?

You can definitely do that in image editors (e.g. Photoshop, GIMP, etc.).

It might be possible to configure "fancy" graphics cards to do what you want, but if it is possible I don't know how to do it.

well again the same disappointment. But i hope there is some one in the world who knows the solution, most probably by doing something in graphics card driver or display driver or something like that.

And please don't tell any solution that is not related to question. #photoshop #Gimp

Callender Actually i want a software/driver that changes white pixel to grey, all other colors remain same on screen. I am not talking about a particular window. i am talking about each and every thing that come to display on screen, photos/videos/window/browser/etc. Callender, i hope you have my answer

The only way I know is to use a custom color profile - that's not something that I'm expert on.

Also if you change settings below the white shown will be more pleasant.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors]

"InfoWindow"="237 237 237"
"Window"="237 237 237"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors]

"Window"="237 237 237"
"InfoWindow"="237 237 237"
