DimScreen is a quick and simple way to dim the brightness of your device's screen.

Brightness can impact battery life, so it's important to always keep the appropriate level of brightness to match your device's battery life. There's always a built-in way to adjust the brightness but sometimes this can require minutes of digging into the operating system to find. DimScreen is going to take care of it for you in a few simple clicks of a button.

This is an incredibly lightweight program. Depending on the type of device, it might be one or two clicks away from accomplishing your goal. For example, a laptop takes two shortcuts to finally adjust the brightness. For desktop, it's a click away. This is a very handy little program.

You can place it in a folder without having to install it. Just use the executable function and you're on your way to a healthier brightness level on your screen. These nifty little programs prove very helpful for heavy computer users who need to extend their battery life.


  • Customize your shortcuts with ease
  • All screens are compatible
  • No installation


  • A mere 10 brightness options to choose from, not nearly enough for some folks

This practical little program has proven itself very handy to a multitude of people. There are no frills here. DimScreen promises to quickly and easily adjust your device's brightness and it follows through on that promise without making much of a fuss about itself. Many users will appreciate its simplicity and practicality. Most of all, they will appreciate that their battery life lasts much longer than it would if they were having to adjust through the operating system.
