Windows 7: Tool to control display brightness by command line?

29 Jun 2014   #1

Tool to control display brightness by command line?

The control panel has a nice slider bar for controlling the screen/display brightness, but I have a need to adjust it via a command line statement. Is there a way to do this in Windows or a utility that can do it for me?

Basically, I am looking for a solution that would allow me to set brightness to 90% or 30% (examples) in a command script. The computer will be unattended and I cannot foresee what power plan might be in place.

Solutions? Thanks in advance.

Soho I don't know if this will be of any help - I don't understand it fully myself and I would be doing some back ups before I tried any of it.
