The Surface Book keyboard features a standard layout with cool backlit keys, but did you know you can also control the screen brightness with a keyboard shortcut as well as adjust the keyboard backlighting? It’s quite easy to do so!

There are two keys located on the keyboard that allow you to decrease or increase the keyboard backlighting. Located at the F1 and F2 keys, these two keys allow you to control your keyboard backlighting. For those of you who prefer to not have any backlit keys, you can simply decrease the lighting until it’s gone.

With the keyboard, you can also adjust your screen brightness to your optimal levels. To increase screen brightness via the keyboard, simply press Fn + Del. If you want to decrease screen brightness, simply press Fn + Backspace.
