Microsoft has been deployed some major features on Windows 10 updates. One of my favorites is Night Light option. But, what it is? Night Light essentially reduces the blue light radiation that emits from the monitor. This kind of light is harmful if exposed intensively during the night. One significant effect is your sleep cycle would be disrupted. Plus, it can decrease an eyes fatigue when using the computer for reading. So, how to activate Night Light on Windows 10?
Please note that Night Light only available if you have been installed Windows 10 Creator Update. If the machine has not updated yet, go to Windows 10 Update Assistants to get new improvement.
Alright, let’s go to the tutorial.
How to Activate Night Light on Windows 10
Click the Notifications icon in the bottom corner of Taskbar.
If Windows 10 Creator Update has been installed, you will see Night Light button on the Notifications center. Click on it to activate the feature.
Once it activated, the screen will slowly get into warm color. At that time, the blue light would be decreased significantly. Although the color screen might not correct due to blue depreciation, the Night Light is a better solution for people who regularly staring at the monitor for a long time.
How to Adjust Night Light Color Temperature
The intensity of the warm color of Night Light can be adjusted as you desired. In order to set the configuration, right-click on the Night Light and then Go to Settings.
You will see a Windows settings layout, in the Color section, click the Night Light Settings.
Now you can drag to the left to increase the warm color and drag to the right to smooth the yellowish color.
The Night Light is set to be activated at the night by default. But you can turn off the Schedule and keep it running all the day. I personally always enabled this features and found it can reduce an eyes pain.
Meanwhile, if you going to use a video editor, photo editor, or watching videos, I prefer to turn off Night Light temporary to restore the true color of a screen display.
