Laptop or monitor?
Laptop
Right click desktop.
Select 'Graphics Properties'
Color Correction
Brightness control - turn down.

Desktop
On the monitor, consult the manual for how to change the display properties.
If there is the same option for the laptop solution, just do the same.

Fn Key would be found on a laptop keyboard, your using Desktop so its not applicable.
