You've just got your Nintendo Switch OLED model, but the screen is not quite what you expected it to be? Don't worry, Nintendo Life's American-based video producer, Zion Grassl, has got a fix!

How to change Switch Screen brightness settings

Before we start, be warned - by changing your screen brightness settings on this new OLED model, you do potentially increase the risk of screen burn-in. (Although YouTuber Bob Wulff conducted an experiment and found no noticeable burn-in after 1800 hours of continuous use — take that as you will.)

With that out of the way, here are some ways you can improve the brightness of the screen:

  • Hold down the HOME Menu, adjust the brightness, and turn off the 'Auto-Brightness' setting.

Alternatively, you can follow the next lot of steps and change the brightness settings the long-winded way:

  • On the HOME Menu, go down to the 'System Settings' icon, scroll down to 'System', scroll down to 'Console-Screen Colors' within this menu, and swap from 'Vivid' to 'Standard'.

"You'll notice that the screen looks a lot more normal, a bit more softer on the eyes...depending on the game that you're playing, you may want to change it back to vivid."

Again, do all of this at your own risk - but hopefully, these extra options can make your own time with the new Switch OLED model a bit more comfortable.
