    I have a 4gb Surface 3, happily running on Windows 8.1.

    I have no complaints or problems, except for one issue: the screen varies in brightness according to what is being displayed. I do have the adaptive brightness turned off in Power settings, so this is not responsible. In researching this, it appears that the Intel HD Graphics driver also has a power saving option that is in play here. The solution would be to disable this option, but unfortunately, there is no Graphics Control Panel accessible either by right-click on the Desktop, or anywhere in Control Panel, System Settings, Configuration, etc., etc.

    I have read of installing a different driver to gain a Control Panel, but I want this to be as 'genuine' and specific to the Surface 3 as possible. In other words, I would hate to install a new driver, have it fix this problem, but then create numerous other problems or instability.

    When I check through Updates, or look for a new driver through Device Manager, it tells me I have the most recent one, so that's a dead-end.

    Does anybody here know of a way to add a Graphics Control Panel to the existing driver, or which is the correct driver with the GCP for this device?

    Nobody? It would be great to have access to the Graphics Control Panel.
