Night Light is a new Windows 10 feature introduced with the Windows 10 Creators Update. Night Light is designed to filter out harmful blue light from your computer display and replace it with warmer colors which reduce eye strain and help you sleep. It’s a great feature that even supports a schedule, something previously could only be done using third-party apps like f.lux.
Enable Night Light for Windows 10
1. Click Start > Settings > System > Display > Toggle On Night light
2. Click Night Light settings to further adjust its configuration including color temperature and schedule.
3. Once Night Light has been enabled, you can also activate it from the Action Center – Windows key + A > click the Night light tile.
For me, the benefits are clear; working in front of a computer all day, can take a toll on your health; it’s great to see features like Blue light available out of the box to make your computing experience more comfortable. If your version of Windows 10 doesn’t have Night light, we still recommend f.lux. It’s free and has been around for a long time.
Did you know? Last year, Apple introduced Night Shift or Blue Light support in iOS 9. Take a look at our article to learn how to control it on your mobile.
