How to tint the screen a warmer color in Windows 10

Last year, an app called Flux was released for iOS. She tinted her screen a nice warm color so looking at her phone at night wouldnt hurt her eyes.

The tint color also made sure a bright display didn't scare away your sleep. The app was so popular that it was quickly pulled from the App Store, and Apple soon introduced the feature on iOS. Windows 10 just did the same by adding a feature to natively tint your screen with a warmer color. Is that how it works.

This feature is officially called 'Blue Light'. You can activate or deactivate it at will, and schedule it to activate at a specific time or at sunset.

To tint your screen and use the Blue Light feature, open the Settings app. Go to the System settings group and select 'Display'. In the 'Color' section, you will see a change to 'Lower blue light automatically'. Click on the 'Blue Light Settings' link below it.

There are two ways to activate the Blue Light settings; manually or as intended. However, before turning it on, select how much you want to tint your screen. On the blue light settings screen, there is a slider called 'Color temperature at night'. Use it to set the intensity of the tint. Click on the 'Activate now' button to enable it. Once enabled, the button will read 'Turn off now' so you can disable the tint.

If you scroll a little further down, you can see the schedule settings for the blue light. Activate the option ‘Lower blue light automatically’ and then configure a schedule or a sunset trigger. To use the Sunset trigger, you must have location services enabled.

This feature is currently available to users in the Windows Insider program running build 15007. In March 2017, you will be able to natively tint your screen a warmer color in Windows 10 with the Creator Update.
