    Holding the Function key and F2 doesn't work. It worked before Windows 10

    holding FN and hitting F2 a few times got the light up to the brightness I like.

    Tap the function key (Fn) and then you can repeatedly tap the F2 key to obtain the brightness you want. Important - don't hold the Fn key down. Just tap it once before tapping F2.
