Geek Squeak #17-018: If you are looking for more than the Windows Night Light Feature, then give f.lux a try…

The Windows “Night Light”, a new feature in the Window’s Creator version, allows you to reduce the blue light of the monitor and make the display warmer in appearance to improve your sleep and reduce the risk of insomnia. You can read more about the “Night Light” feature and how to activate it, HERE on the blog, which is a welcome feature to Windows; however, if you are looking for more than the Night Light feature, then you may want to take a look at f.lux.

f.lux has been around for awhile (since 2008) and is now available as a Windows app that can be downloaded/installed from the Windows Store. The original desktop version of f.lux is still available and can be downloaded from the f.lux website HERE.

Where f.lux excels over the Windows Night Light is that f.lux  makes your computer screen look like the room you’re in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again. You can pretty much control all the variables to adjust f.lux to meet your specific comfort levels OR you simply tell f.lux where you live and the kind of lighting you have and f.lux will make the adjustments automatically.

I have used f.lux since 2008 and can tell you, it does make a healthy difference…
