Go to Apple Logo to System Preferences/ Displays, there also should be brightness controls on the keyboard: F1 and F2.

Thanks for fixing my easily fixed problem. I have been trying to get into my i photos all week and everything i have tried has failed. I still get the coloured wheel turning and turning. The first expert was not very good and I lost him eventually!! I have reduced the space on my hard driveand have purchased a separate hard drive now to put all 23.000 pictures on, but cannot get into the albums. I have put the latest ones onto another album, but seem to keep creating new albums. I have been told I have updated new version of i photo and to go there to view pictures but if I have I don't know how and if I have, how do I access it please? I want to download the new version of i photo as that obviously is the only way I can get into my pictures. I am of a generation that does not take to techno stuff easily so I am fairly lost. Do you think you can help me at all? Thanks Charlotte

OK I will try again. I cannot get into my i photo library. I have been trying for days and tried so many things like emptying folders and stuff I don't need as i thought space was an issue. However eventually I had a note saying I had changed settings and had got new version of i photo and was to us this. If I did press a download I cannot remeber but if I did get the new improved version of i photo where would I look as I cannot find it in downloads. If it is there I cant find it. So what would I need to do? Downlaod again, or look somewhere for the download and how then do I make it work. Techno nerd I am, sorry!! Thanks Charlotte

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
