How to Turn On or Off Night Light in Windows 10

information   Information
Screens emit blue light, which can keep you up at night. Night light displays warmer colors to help you sleep.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15002, you can now turn on or off blue light reduction.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15014, Microsoft has adjusted the animation when lowering blue light to be a bit smoother. They also made some polish tweaks to Blue Light Settings with more coming soon.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15019, the "blue light" feature has been renamed to night light to make it more accurately reflect what the feature does. Microsoft made some improvements to the night light feature that lets you preview the setting before applying it.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15025, the night light color temperature range has been extended to go down to very red (1200 K) and the entire range of the slider now works correctly.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off night light to reduce blue light for your account in Windows 10.
