Disable GUI screen dimming?
« on: November 24, 2020, 10:04:31 PM »
Windows 10 Home 1909 ~ Avast 20.9.x

Somewhat minor but my old/slow hardware doesn't like full-screen dimming like that done by Avast when accessing the GUI ~ is there a way to disable this? If not, can I submit as a feature request (not sure how)? THX

Avast doesn't dim your screen.

Can you be a little more detailed as I can see no full-screen dimming when accessing the UI, see attached image.

I can only think that you may have enabled Protect Avast with a password in the Settings > General > Password ?
But I'm not sure it does this if you just open the UI only when you try to make changes.
