Deep Screen Dimmer

Its done!---→

Have you ever used your laptop at night, or had a painful head ache? And that damn FN key just wont dim the screen any farther than you want? That is why I made this application in visual basic. What it does  is overlay a black color over your screen (default 32%) to dim the screen past the black-light capability, and the best part is that you can click through it and use your whole screen as if the dimmer wasn't even there! to change the % of dim just click the deep-dimmer in the taskbar and hold: CTRL+SHIFT and while holding the screen will go completely black and you can then change he % and let go and return to a soothing screen.......

If anyone even bothers to watch this and might want it, just leave a comment at the bottom and ill make a step-by step instuctable.... with the whole source code so you can change it!
*I am not the original developer i just made it better*
