Brightness control software for all your monitors
Dimmer is a small and free application for Windows designed to help control the brightness of your computer screen, monitor or display. This becomes very useful when you are in near or total darkness and the minimum brightness from your display or screen is still too much. It offers a fast and easy way to adjust the brightness of your displays and it can dim all your screens and monitors; LCD, TFT and LED backlit types (even CRTs). It supports multiple screens, displays and monitors with convenient individual controls to adjust each one.
By reducing the brightness of your screens, Dimmer helps to protect your eyes, improve your sleep and has saved the eyesight of thousands of users since 2004, some say it's better than carrots. Designed to run on all versions of Windows, it's simple, intuitive and lightweight on system resources, ideal for everyday use.
Dimmer is free, hopefully forever. Keeping things running, however, is not without financial cost. If you would like to support the countless hours and effort I have put into researching and developing Dimmer, please consider donating if you can. Grab the latest version below.

Screen brightness adjustment the easy way
The need for this program came about when working at night with minimum ambient light in the room. This was uncomfortable and damaging to the eyes. So one day (back in 2004) I decided to develop Dimmer to solve this problem. The monitor brightness can now be easily adjusted via a slider and/or text input controls which are very easy to use and fine-tune.
Another convenient feature is that Dimmer does not require installation, it's a portable application. Simply extract into a folder and run. The program stores its settings into a file in the program folder (for your convenience) so the Windows Registry is not used. When no longer needed, just delete the folder and you are done. When Dimmer runs, it will dim the brightness to the level it was last used.
Dimmer has been much acclaimed over the years for its simplicity and as the best dimming software for displays, screens or monitors. Feel free to recommend it to your friends and family and you may link to this page if you wish. Hope you enjoy and find this software useful.
