cjanvrin, unless I'm badly mistaken, that's a monitor function. Some have picture quality controls on the monitor itself, others have controls in monitor properties. I've seen both.

seems it can be both via setup software on the CD that comes either the monitor; and also as per this (rather lengthy link):

Suggest you navigate to the site/link just above; and then have a read. It's all there...

Copy the entire link above into your browser...

Also suggest you copy the stuff there (into Word/notepad) and save it as a document/file - for future use?

It's normally not necessary to install the drivers to use the front panel controls.

The three most important things in computing:
1. Backups, 2. Backups and 3. Backups.

An anti-glare screen/filter might be also helpful.

mmm - setting controls properly would be logically the first step; then using the above util would be an asset too...

Thanks to "jeffiner" for that util; one to consider chez moi; and also at work... Eye strain due to poorly set/adjusted displays is an increasing issue, as many are running displays way too bright and also often at colour temperatures that are anything but realistic in terms of actual colorimetry and real-life...

A common issue (now that many presenters in News programmes etc. especially) is the on-camera use of laptops and tablet systems. These invariably have a high screen/display brightness setting (so as to be legible under studio lights...). And the screen ouput of course can throw a significanlty blue light effect onto the face etc... Reducing screen brightness more than a little isn't really practical as then it's not bright enuff to be read...

We have recently installed "power strip" from:

to some good effect... And I am going to suggest we also look at "jeffiner's" suggestion too...
