How to activate the backlit keyboard on my MSI laptop using Windows 10?

Hi,

I changed the SSD 256 Go of my MSI GS60 2PL-018FR Ghost laptop with a 1 To SSD and I installed Windows 10 instead of Windows 8 previously installed.

But now the keyboard back-lit doesn't work anymore.

Where can I re-activate this back-lit in Windows 10 ?

Thanks

Hi WLID1966

On an MSI laptop, usually it is these keyboard shortcuts:

Fn + the Minus Key on the Number Pad to increase ot tun on the backlight

or

Fn Key + the Plus key on the Number Pad to darken the backlight
