Get a better night’s sleep by using Windows 10’s Night light

If you have trouble sleeping at night, or you suffer from the occasional eye ache or eye strain after using your PC for long periods, try following this Night Light – How-to guide, and enjoy using Windows 10 once again. Available since the Windows 10 Creators Update, Night light offers you the chance to reduce the blue light emitted from your screen (by adjusting colors), which in turn allows you to get into a more sleep-ready state.

There are a couple of ways to access it.

1. To toggle it on and off, just click on the Start Menu, type Display, and then hit Enter.

Press Start Menu and type Display

On the Display screen, you’ll see the toggle switch. Click on it to toggle it on or off. (Or tab down to it and hit the spacebar, if you mostly use a keyboard.)

To go into settings, click on Night light settings.

2. To go into its settings directly, click on the Start Menu, type Night light, and hit enter.

Press Start Menu and type Night light

The settings page will open.

From here, you can turn on Night light, adjust the color temperature at night, toggle the Schedule switch, or set the hours that it’s activated.

That’s pretty much all there is to it. If you have trouble sleeping sometimes, give Night Light a try, and see if it works for you.
