    It would have been of considerable help if you had told us if this is laptop, or a desktop etc
    However
    On most laptop keyboards, you’ll find shortcut keys that allow you to quickly increase and decrease your brightness. Often, these keys are part of the row of F-keys–that’s F1 through F12–that appear above the number row on your keyboard. To adjust the screen brightness, look for an icon that corresponds to brightness–often a sun logo or something similar–and press the keys.

    These are often function keys, which means you may have to press and hold the Fn key on your keyboard, often located near the bottom-left corner of your keyboard, while you press them.


    OR Windows 8
    You may find if it not a laptop or indeed if you do not have the keys described
    If you’re using Windows 7 or 8, and don’t have a Settings app, this option available in the Control Panel. Open the Control Panel, select “Hardware and Sound,” and select “Power Options.” You’ll see a “Screen brightness” slider at the bottom of the Power Plans window

    OR
    Settings app on Windows 10, too. Open the Settings app from your Start menu or Start screen, select “System,” and select “Display.” Click or tap and drag the “Adjust brightness level” slider to change the brightness level.

    OR if it a desktop with a separate monitor then many monitors have a brightness setting
