14 Comments to The Windows 10 Night light: What it does and how to use it

  1. Just tried it says:

    This menu selections do not exist.

  2. Louis says:

    Obviously there are different versions of W10, mine does not contain the “Night light” option either !

    At the very beginning of this tutorial, we clearly state the following:

    “NOTE: This guide is created for Windows 10 Creators Update, which will be available to all Windows 10 users, for free, starting with the spring of 2017. Previous Windows 10 versions that were released before 2017 don’t have this feature while newer versions do.”

    Wow! I am a night owl who works as a writer at night and once I turned on the ‘night light’ feature on my laptop I instantly felt my eyes relax. I’m writing this comment now with the night light feature and I also darkened my screen as well, I don’t feel the eye strain from the regular bright white screen. I hope this helps with reducing the headaches I get. Recommended if you work on a laptop till the late hours of the night!

      Same around night owl and on screens generally both day & night. (not gaming) Don’t understand how this helps around daytime vs night time. I use lamps in my house at night, and only rarely use the laptop with lights out. Fluorescents above my no-window office during the day, using 3 sep monitors. Guess I don’t get the difference or “perk” with this, instead of just manually adjusting brightness on your screen(s)?

      You need a real monitor methinks.

  7. George says:

    Never used it, to be honest. I prefer f.lux and yes, reducing blue light is indispensable. I recommend it to everyone.

  8. Casey says:

    Hi, I would like to know the percentage of blocked blue light if you set the strength to maximum.

    1. Cleo Cat says:

      Well, if you follow the tutorial to get to the Dark Light Settings, it allows you to go from 0% to 100%. The default setting is 48% blue light cut, which seems a good compromise because you can still actually see blue colors, just not as intense. I tried 100% and HOLY WOW, looks like an Amber Screen monitor from the 80’s. Not my idea of relaxing, maybe I’m immune to blue light issues? Who knows. Glad it helps others though.

  9. Gaffer says:

    Isn’t it true that most monitors come with blue light controls too? Mine does. I set it to reduce blue. Now I can’t see the difference when I turn on the Win10 night light. Make sense?

      You either use Windows 10 for this task or the settings of your monitor. Not both at the same time. It is going to result in a big mess otherwise.
