Apparently, one of the world’s leading health issues is a lack of sleep. One of the causes is all our tech– especially bright monitors and other screens before you go to sleep. The problem seems to be the blue light coming from these devices.
The current version of Windows 10, has a built-in option to dim some of this blue light– in theory, making it easier for you to fall asleep afterward.
Just start typing Night Light in the search bar, click on it when it appears in the list and you’ll be taken directly to the Settings App. If you have the search bar hidden, as I do, just click on the Start Button to open the Start Menu and start typing. The search bar automatically appears.
I didn’t bother with any of the settings other than turning Night Light on by clicking on the switch in the Schedule section. Schedule Night Light and check Set hours.
It was already set at 9:00 pm until 7:00 am the next morning. On my system, now it dims my screen giving it a yellow tint. By the way, you will not see the scheduler until you enable it.
You can click on the Turn on now button to get an idea of how your screen will look. Use the colour slider to change the screen display more to your liking when it’s active.
Have a good night’s sleep.
