When I go Fullscreen/Maximize on Brave Browser, Screen Dims

Whenever I maximize my screen to Fullscreen on Brave Browser on my Windows Desktop, whether this is on youtube, gotowebinar, or whatever site I am on, the screen dims significantly.
My computer screens brightness settings stay the same. And when I maximize another program (eg Zoom) it does not dim. Only on Brave Browser.
How do I stop/change this?
Otherwise I will need to change browser, though i prefer to stay with Brave otherwise

Thank you
However changing that setting that did not work, it still dims all websites in fullscreen.
BTW i saw on a previous thread to try changing personal profile. I tried this, but still the same problem.

Try disabling extensions.

Went into settings > extensions > toggled all extensions to the Left (assume this is disabling them)
Stays the same, still dimming on Fullscreen

Do you have adaptive brightness on?
Are your drivers up to date?

Can you direct me for how to check adaptive drivers and make sure my drivers are up to date?


Open Windows Settings, and search for ‘adaptive’

Adaptive brightness is available in some laptops.

No Adaptive Brightness option in Settings.
All Drivers are updated
