WS Monitor Controls
This utility gives you easy access to your display configuration controls directly from Windows 10. Adjust the monitor's brightness, contrast and color temperature without having to reach for small and cumbersome physical monitor buttons. Lower the brightness in the evening to prevent eye strain.

The menu of WS Monitor Controls is accessible through the Windows System Tray (the area left to the clock) and gives quick access to display controls. The shortcut for the menu is WIN+F3. If the icon is hidden behind the 'Show hidden icons'-arrow, you can simply drag it to a visible part of the systray.

When using the sliders you can optionally hold CTRL to change the value for all attached monitors.
Please be aware that control of attached monitors depends on whether the monitor supports DDC/CI commands. If it does not, it is not controllable from any software. The support of color temperatures especially varies between monitors. When nothing seems to happen, try another temperature.
