Add Brightness Slider to Taskbar in Windows 10? How?

If you have an expensive laptop, then it probably has an ambient light sensor to adjust the brightness automatically for you. Still, there could be situations when you might find this feature not functioning as expected. In such situations, I rely on the keyboard function keys that are mapped to decrease the brightness of the display. That is an easy way, but, if you are viewing the laptop in darker light conditions with all the lights off, it might be hard for you to find the function key exactly.
