Dark Screen

Released today

Some computer users experience problems with glare from the screen. Dark Screen sits over all windows and provides a means of dimming the output between 20 and 90%. Dark Screen is multi monitor aware, and can be used on the main monitor only or all monitors. Everything is controlled from the icon in the Notification area of the Taskbar (where the clock sits). Clicking this icon will open the menu which allows the selection of Multi Monitor Support, and the percentage of dimming of the screen.

As usual it's free and available from


  1. THANK YOU for this! I have a Dell 3007WFP-HC monitor which doesn't allow you to dim it very much. At night when I have all the lights off and the backlight all the way down it's still far too bright. In the past I've been turning the brightness and contrast all the way down in the Nvidia control panel, but this program appears to not affect the colors as much. :)

    My only gripe is that it flickers sometimes when opening menus in programs and at other times. I'm using Vista x64. Otherwise it appears to be working great! Thanks!!! :)

  2. Yes I am also in look for of Flash tutorials, as I would like to learn more on the topic of flash, so if you have please post it here.
