    Hey everyone,

    I was just wondering how to turn down the brightness on a second monitor that is plugged into my iMac when I am running Windows 7. I know how to do it inside of Mac OS X but with Windows, I can't find the setting!

    I have looked in Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Display > Screen Resolution.... but there is nothing there for brightness.

    Anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks.

    Check in your video card driver's control panel.

    I checked the Catalyst Control Center, and there were still no options for changing the brightness. This is very frustrating!

    Does your monitor not have physical buttons?

    It's the apple 24" cinema display, so no.
