Adjusting Display Panel Brightness
Once you have turned on your LifeBook notebook, you may want to adjust the brightness level of the 
screen to a more comfortable viewing level. In Windows XP systems, the brightness can be adjusted using 
the keyboard. In Windows Vista systems, there are three ways to adjust the brightness, by using the 
keyboard, the Power Options, or the Windows Mobility Center. 
Using the Keyboard
• [Fn+F6]: Pressing repeatedly will lower the brightness of your display.
• [Fn+F7]: Pressing repeatedly will increase the brightness of the display.
Using the Power Options (Windows Vista)
To change the brightness using the Power Options utility, open the Control Panel and double-click on the 
Power Options icon. Select “Adjust the display brightness” in the left panel, then drag the brightness bars 
to the desired level. Note that the settings you make via this utility become permanent until you decide to 
change them again.
Using the Windows Mobility Center (Windows Vista)
In the Control Panel, double-click the Windows Mobility Center icon. Drag the Display Brightness bar to 
the desired level.
