Gamma Control is an easy to use software designed to let you adjust the gamma on your computer, by just pressing a combination of keys on your keyboard. Or you can adjust the gamma levels by using a trackbar.
Gamma Control allows you to put your monitor to sleep, by pressing key combinations, which especially proves useful if you have more than one monitor, and you wish you put them in standby mode when you leave.

Epic features of version 4 of Gamma Control is that it now offers full customization of hotkeys.
Additionally, hotkeys are no longer limited to the keyboard, you can also use the mouse; buttons left, right, middle, button 4/5, scroll up/down.

This software is especially useful when gaming, as you only need to press the key combinations and not having to quit the game. Additionally Gamma Control offers two profiles, which is controlled by "CTRL + ALT + S" and "CTRL + ALT + W" by standard, to adjust the gamma respectively to 0 and to the previous used configuration.

How it works (standard combinations):
"CTRL + ALT + +" to turn up the gamma.
"CTRL + ALT + -" to turn it down.
"CTRL + ALT + *" to make default gamma.
"CTRL + ALT + S" press this combination, and your gamma setting will go to Default.(useful in-game).
"CTRL + ALT + W" press this combination, and your gamma will go back to your last used gamma setting.(useful in-game).
"CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + S" press this combination, and your monitor will enter stand-by.
