Adjust monitor brightness, contrast with a mouse/ keyboard

ClickMonitorDDC is a freeware tool which allows adjusting the brightness and contrast of DDC-compatible monitors (most of them, laptops too).

You could do this anyway with the monitor buttons, of course, but it's often easier to use the mouse or keyboard, and you're also able to set brightness or contrast to a fixed value. (If you know 70/100 is correct, just click "70", no need to manually adjust each time.)

The program arrives as a single tiny executable, no installation required. Simply run it and an icon appears in your system tray showing the current brightness value.

Click the icon and sliders appear for brightness, contrast (on desktops only, not laptops), and there's a volume slider as a bonus.

Clicking and dragging a slider adjusts brightness and contrast in real time. Alternatively, clicking one of the numbers next to the slider - 5, 10, 15 etc - sets your display to that value immediately.

If you have multiple monitors then you should be able to select another, and adjust that separately.

A hotkey feature allows all of this to be tweaked from the keyboard. You're able to assign brightness, contrast and volume values, or just change one or two, and it's even possible to tweak these values incrementally (increase brightness by 6, decrease volume by 8 and increase volume by 10%, say).

Verdict:

A convenient way to adjust brightness and contrast, easy to use immediately, but with some handy configuration options if you need more precise control.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
