Screen Brightness Short Cut?

Is there a way to bump up, or lower the amount of illumination on the screen "on the fly" without having to go through Options / Screen/Keyboard / Backlight Brightness, etc.? Just wondering - it'd be a real convenience when I occasionally pick up my BB in the total dark to quickly check something, and it blinds me. Thanks for any help! Smiley Happy

Re: Screen Brightness Short Cut?

You can set an option that dimms/lightens the screen depending on the current light-level (outside, inside, dark...)!

So you dont have to do it yourself! 

If your question was answered, please accept it as a sollution and / or give Kudos ;-)

WOW! Thanks! I must have seen that setting somewhere along the way, but I sure forgot about it. You're a genius!

Hi and welcome to the forums! Merry Christmas!!

 

On the curve the only option are under screen keyboard.

You can set the following:
