The Windows 11 operating system from Microsoft has several features and functionalities, allowing users to customize the computer based on their needs. Apart from allowing users to make changes, the operating system also comes with several options that automatically adjust the settings on the device.
One such option is for the brightness of the screen or display, which can be adjusted by the user manually or change the settings so that the system will automatically adjust the brightness based on the lighting conditions or optimize the battery.
If the ambient sensor is present on the device, then Windows 11 can adjust the brightness based on the lighting conditions and based on the content being shown on the screen.
In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to easily enable the Auto Brightness feature on Windows 11 computer so that the system changes the screen’s brightness based on the lighting conditions.

Step 2: When the app opens, select the “System” option from the left sidebar.
Step 3: After that, select the “Display” option from the right side pane.
Step 4: On the Display settings page, under the “Brightness & color” section, click on the Brightness setting.
