Please post the make and model of this computer.
Open the Device Manager and scroll down to Display Adapters.
Double click on this to display the Adapters, double click on the Adapter you want to change, then click on Driver and select Update driver.
If you get the message that you have the best driver installed uninstall the driver and restart the computer. When Windows boots a new driver will be installed to replace the one that was uninstalled.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

It's an MSI 3160NGW.
There are two graphics cards listed under Display Adaptors:
Intel® HD Graphics 5600
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M
I updated the drivers and rebooted my machine. I set the brightness to high again and now we'll see if it sticks.
I post here again if it does not.

Did not stick.
I guess we can chock this up to another feature Microsoft doesn't want you to have control over.

Do you have adaptive brightness disabled?
If not try, disabling it.
Do you have any sensor settings on your monitor which may be doing it??
Also does the Intel graphics on your machine have an advanced mode called 'Display Power Saving Technology' which shows up hen 'on battery' is selected?

Adaptive brightness is switched off.
Not sure of any sensor settings.
Not sure of 'Display Power Saving Technology' mode.

Check if your computer is on "Power Saving" mode. If it's on, turn it off. That might help.
