    Turn off laptop screen without waiting for it to go off?


    Hi, I have an ultrabook running windows 8 but it doesn't have a dedicated function button that lets me turn off the display.

    Is there anything built into windows 8 that can let me turn off my laptop display with just a couple of clicks or a new keyboard shortcut?

    Thanks

    Hello Martyres,

    If you like, you add the desktop context menu from the tutorial below to be able to turn off the display at anytime.

    Turn Off Display - Add to Desktop Context Menu in Windows

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
