Hi, I've been a ScreenBright user for a while now and always wished it had presets, so I don't have to use the slider to carefully get the value I need. I use ScreenBright dozens of times a day (switching between web browsing, doing visual art, watching movies, writing novels, playing games, etc), and having to always use the slider to get the exact value I want becomes very tiresome. I emailed the developer begging for a preset save/toggle feature, but I was told to just use command line batch file, which I have no idea what it means or how to do it. I searched the web but I'm don't know much about DOS so it didn't really help (I'm not a techie at all when it comes to DOS/programming and have little to no knowledge in that area. I'm better at the hardware level stuff like building computers).
@HothBase - You mentioned that you created quick single-click profile settings that act like presets, but I have no idea how to create them. I tried to follow your instructions, but all they did was allow me to set the settings via command line, and I have no idea how to create/save the profiles I want (and the Save button on ScreenBright doesn't seem to do anything). Can you please tell this noob how to do it (the steps)? Thanks so much!
EDIT: Okay, the developer has given me the steps to create .bat presets, and if anyone else is like me and don't know how to do it, here are the steps he gave me. Below is his instruction:
The save button shall save the settings in the screen.
As far as I remember at least one of my screens forgets the setting after a power cycle if I don't click save.
That's not what you need.
1. launch Notepad
2. enter the following text:
ScreenBright -set brightness 40 contrast 50 save
3. save it as for example "preset1.bat" in the directory of screenbright
4. maybe create a shortcut of this file on the desktop or in the start menu
5. exit ScreenBright
6. double-click the bat file or launch the shortcut you've just created
now the screen shall be set to brightness 40 and contrast 50 and both saved in the screen.
You can do the same completely without batch files as it's described on the website you've linked to me, but as far as I see the description misses some points.
