    Night light feature not working correctly on Desktop PC


    Is anyone having problems with the Night light feature with the Windows 10 Creators Update?

    My Desktop PC is having an issue with it to where it wouldn't turn on last night automatically. So I had to manually turn it on. This morning, Settings and the Action Center says it's turned off when the screen of the computer looks like it is turned on. My Night light on all of my computers are supposed to turn on from Sunset to Sunrise.

    I will search for a solution to the problem online, but for now I am sure there aren't many solutions available since the Creators Update is so new.

    Thanks! :)

    If you are using location services to determine the local Sunset/Sunrise times it could be the location that's in error, not Night Light itself. Try turning off location and set a manual schedule.

    @Bree, I know. But the computer said that Night light was turned off when it wasn't.

    There are two places that have a switch that says Night Light is turned on.

    The first is Settings > System > Display. This just tells you that Night Light is enabled, not that it is on at this moment. You have to click on the link for 'night light settings' to find out. Here there's another on/off switch, this one is for scheduling night light. Not the best laid out options, confused me at first too.
