10.7: Adjusting display brightness with multiple displays
Authored by: theOtter on Apr 30, '12 05:26:17AM
Now the question is how to change the brightness on a tertiary display. My 17″ MacBook Pro (Early 2011) is hooked up to a dual Thunderbolt Display configuration. So far, hereís what Iíve found:
  • F1 on the MacBook keyboard: decrease brightness on built-in display
  • F2 on the MacBook keyboard: increase brightness on built-in display
  • ^F1 on the MacBook keyboard: decrease brightness on Thunderbolt Display 1
  • ^F2 on the MacBook keyboard: increase brightness on Thunderbolt Display 1
  • F14 on the Apple Pro Keyboard: decrease brightness on Thunderbolt Display 1
  • F15 on the Apple Pro Keyboard: increase brightness on Thunderbolt Display 1
Unfortunately, there doesnít seem to be any way to change the brightness on Thunderbolt Display 2. Iíve tried every combination of modifier keys and F14/F15 I can think of; the only ones that do anything are ⌥F14 and ⌥F15, which each bring up Displays in System Preferences. Unfortunately, thereĎs not even a slider for TBD2! Thoughts?
