Are Your Screens Just Too Bright at night?

Windows 10 now has a wonderful feature built in called Night Light.  Turning this on changes the white levels of your computer from a Cool Blue White to a Warm White as well as reducing the brightness.

To turn this on Open Settings -> System -> Display

Here you will see a Night Light option.

Click Night light settings and you can configure how warm or cool the white will be and even set it to a schedule to turn on automatically. 

For those still on Windows 7 you can download a wonderful program named F.lux https://justgetflux.com/

This provides the same function that the Windows 10 Night Light offers.

Starting in Android N a “Night Mode” is provided.  Open Settings, Select Display, Select Nightlight and you can configure the times it will activate.

On a Apple device?  iOS 9.3 added a “Night Shift” mode that also does the same.  Apple devices use the clock and GPS to determine when the sun sets and rises by default.
