    Its still there, its just in a really stupid location compared to how easy it was to change it before.

    Go to Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Adjust Screen Brightness (Under Power Options). There is a slider at the bottom.

    If its somewhere else too hopefully someone can point out. If not, that's a dumb move on their part and hopefully they will add back to the notification center. A lot of the shortcuts on my surface pro keyboard cover don't work anymore either - like invoking the old charms bar.

    Be sure to leave feedback for MS so they know your opinion.

    Thank you. I was probably on that page 10 times but I didn't think to look down at the bottom.

    If you have the battery indicator on the taskbar, click on it and it will show an option to adjust. once there, look at the bottom for the slider. Was much easier with the charms.
