Detailed description:My ZenBook's taskbar is too bright relative to the screen. Even when I make the screen as bright as possible, the taskbar is still brighter. Wen watching video in full screen, the bottom edge of the screen where the task bar resides is bright while the rest of the screan is a darker.

Hi Falcon. So I uninstalled Windows HDR Calibration. Problem solved.
Contolling brightness now controls taskbar as well. It's still a bit brighter than the background, but not contrastingly bright which I can live with. More important (to me), when watching a video in full screen, the contrastingly bright bar on the bottom where the taskbar resides is now just as bright as rhe background.
Hope this helps.

Press Windows key + I to open Settings. Go to System > Display. Beneath Brightness and color, use the Brightness slider. To the left will be dimmer, to the right brighter.
