Microsoft has been deployed some significant 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 by the lowering amount of blue lights spectrum. This kind of light is harmful if exposed intensively during the night. One significant effect is your sleep cycle would be disrupted. Plus, the Night Light can minimize 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 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
1. Click the Notifications icon in the bottom corner of Taskbar.
2. If Windows 10 Creator Update has installed, you will see Night Light button on the Notifications center. Click on it to activate the feature.
3. Once it enabled, the screen will slowly get into warm color. At that time, the amount of blue light will be decreased significantly.
Although it may resulting in inaccurate color due to blue depreciation, the Night Light is a better solution for people who are 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. Warmer color could make your eyes sleepy and help you fall into sleep.
1. To adjust the color temperature, right-click on the Night Light and then Go to Settings.
2. You will see a Windows settings layout, in the Color section, click the Night Light Settings.
3. 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 night by default. But you can turn off the Schedule and keep it running all day. I personally always enabled these features since I found it can reduce eyes fatigue and help me sleep.
Meanwhile, if you are going to use a video editor, photo editor, or watching videos, I prefer to turn off Night Light temporary to restore the exact color of a screen display. The Night Light makes the color appear warmer than it actually was. So, color-sensitive activity should disable this feature for good.
