ScreenOff: Turns off Windows Laptop Screen with a Click

In Windows 10/11, it is possible to turn off the laptop or computer monitor screen using a batch file. For Desktop users, even there is a dedicated button on the monitor to turn it off. But it is difficult to turn off the monitor screen on the laptop as there is no button available in it to switch off only the monitor.

If you are using a Windows laptop, there is no provision to turn off the laptop screen manually; however, you can configure the Windows Power Plans to turn off the display after a specific time. But what will you do if you want to turn off the display on your laptop screen right away without locking the laptop or putting it into Sleep mode?
