Windows 10: "Night Light" Feature missing on 1607 Solved

    "Night Light" Feature missing on 1607


    This is actually a feature I have only recently come across and it dawned on me that I am actually missing this feature in my installation of Windows 10; the feature in question is "Night Light", basically f.lux, but actually a part of the Windows 10 operating system. My Windows 10 installation appears to be completely up to date, yet I do not have this feature. I believe that perhaps it may be the result of group policy tampering on my PC as I did tamper with a bit for privacy during my initial installation... But I can't find anything pertaining to this particular feature. If someone can help me out it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello Nathan,

    The "Blue Light" reduction feature was first introduced in Windows 10 build 15002. It was renamed to "Night Light" in build 15019.

    It sounds like you don't have the latest Windows 10 Insider build installed to have this feature available yet

    @Cernunnos, unless you are a Windows Insider you won't. The current build for those of us on the public release is 14393.693, you'll have to wait for the Creators Update due out in May for the 'Night Light'.

    Ahh I see. Thanks you guys, I guess I'd overlooked the possibility that this was an Insider build! Looks like I'm waiting 'till May! Eh, no rush, f.lux is good for me for the moment!

    So I have Creator Update [released 11 April 2017] installed and am running Win10 v1607 b14393.1066, but still have no access to Nightlight. I have restarted. So is this still an insider thing or is my settings wrong or my display not capable?? Curious

    Hello Cycologist, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The version and build number you have posted wouldn't be for the Creators Update.

    Sorry, but no. You have the latest cumulative update for the Anniversary Update (1607). The Creators Update (1703) is being rolled out in phases through widows update. It could be months before you see it. If you want it straight away you'll have to upgrade it manually.
