@Elliot Kirk 

When I play videos in full screen, the screen brightness dims. This is very annoying as I want to see more vivid colors when watching videos. When I hit volume or screen brightness buttons, it goes back to normal, but then dims immediately afterward.

Which Edge insider browser is this happening on for you, and is this a recent issue?

 

Thanks,

 

Frank.

@V-FRROME 

Canary. Yes, its a recent issue, and I think its meant to save battery, but this is the wrong way to do it.

Solution

I will play around with some flags in Edge Canary, see if there is a workaround for you.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Frank.

@V-FRROME 

Thank you!
