Content Adaptive Brightness Control (CABC) is a technology that is used to help to improve the battery life of laptops by dynamically changing your screen's brightness and contrast. As CABC changes the computer brightness automatically, depending on the content that you are watching, users find it distracting and annoying.

 

Based on the feedback from the Windows Insiders, Microsoft has decided to provide you an option to disable the Content Adaptive Brightness Control from the Windows 10 Settings app. If you are running Windows 10 Build 21354 or higher, follow these steps to turn it off.

It's around 4 years when Microsoft first announced that the company is going to make the MS Paint app available in the Microsoft Store. It begins with deprecating this native app and introducing a new app called 'Paint 3D', which didn't attract many users.

 

As spotted by ALumia, the MS Paint is now available in the Microsoft Store. At this moment though you can't download it, it's more likely that everyone using Windows 10 can soon be able to get it.
