Do you want to turn on your monitor’s night light?
In this quick tutorial, you will learn how to turn on the night light on Windows 10. First, we will highlight the benefits of activating night modes on your computer monitor. Then, follow the guidelines in the tutorial to modify your screen settings.
About Screen Night Modes
When you turn on the night mode on your computer screen, it eliminates a lot of the blue glow emitted from the bright monitor. If you are using your computer at night, this function is beneficial since it reduces eye strain and improves the quality of your sleep. Too much blue light at night will interfere with your natural sleep cycle since it reduces melatonin levels.
Melatonin levels in your body tend to rise naturally at night and make your feel sleepy. However, the blue light from your computer monitor (or phone) interferes with this process. Thus, adjusting the settings will decrease the blue light and make the screen appear redder.
You can adjust the settings to suit both your visual preferences and time preferences.

Ideally, you want to set the night light hours to match the sunrise and sunset times. Try to avoid using the computer and your phone right before you go to bed.
