With the new Creators Update for Windows 10, Microsoft is introducing a new night mode to Windows 10. The new night mode, which Microsoft is calling “Night Light” allows you to sleep better at night. With Night Light, you will essentially be able to control how much blue light is emitted by your Windows 10 PC’s display. This will cause your monitor to display warmer colors, which is supposed to help you sleep better at night.

If you have Windows 10 Creators Update installed on your PC, here’s how to enable the new Night Light feature:

  • Open up Settings (Win + I)
  • Click on System and the Display page should automatically open. If not, open it from the sidebar
  • Under the color settings, you will see an option to toggle “Night Light” and a link to open Night Light settings where you can configure more options for Night Light

At the moment, you can set Night Light to automatically kick in every day. At the moment, you can set Night Light to kick in when the sun sets and it will automatically get disabled during sunrise. Alternatively, you can set a custom period for Night Light and it will kick in during those hours:

There’s also a neat slider in the Night Light settings which lets you control the color temperature for Night Light. Also, there’s a quick toggle available for Night Light on the Action Center that lets you quickly enable or disable the feature:
