Friendeye: Switch To User-Specified Screen Brightness With A Click Share
PDF Print E-mail

Back in 2009, we covered F.lux, a cross platform tool that adjusts the color contrast of your computer screen according to the time of day. Color contrast and brightness are the two basic settings that effect, and put strain on, your eyes. You can especially feel the strain on your eyes during night time, if you use the same brightness settings as day. Just like F.lux changes the contrast, Friendeye is a portable screen filtering application that lets you manually select a brightness level for your computer screen. It allows you to switch to the user-specified screen brightness level with just a click. More about Friendeye after the break.

Usage is extremely simple. Just run the application’s executable, and it will start in your system tray. The system tray icon responds to the left and right mouse clicks in different ways. If you right-click the application icon, it will take you to the settings page, where you can adjust the percentage of brightness you want to be dimmed. For instance, if you select 75% in the settings page, upon activation, you will only have 25% brightness left on your screen. To activate the application, just left-click with your mouse on the system tray icon of the application, and the brightness will be instantly dimmed. Click the icon again to restore brightness.


Warning: Do not set the dim level to 100%; it will make the screen go completely black, and you will have to restart your system to restore the brightness settings to normal. Friendeye is an open source application, and works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
