How to Protect Your Eyes When Using Windows 11

It is a well know fact that the LCD screens emit a lot of blue light. These screens are used in all the devices these days whether you are using a smartphone, a tablet, a television, a laptop or a desktop computer. The blue light interferes with the circadian rhythm of the human brain. The circadian rhythm is the internal alarm clock of human brains which decided when to wake up, when to sleep and for how many hours.

With so much blue light coming from the computer screens, we feel tired, eyes become strained and the sleep cycles are disrupted. This is why now people are suing blue light filters of all kinds. There are blue light filtering eye glasses as well as screen covers. Fortunately, Windows 11 comes with a blue light filter of its own.

Here is how you can enable the blue light filter on Windows 11:

  1. Press Win+I to open the Windows settings. Alternatively, you can also click on the Start and then on the small cogwheel icon to open the Windows settings.
  2. Select the Display section and then enable the Night light feature displayed under the Brightness & color category.Windows 11 Blue Light Filter
  3. As soon as you enable Night light which blocks the blue light, you get access to more settings such as the strength of the blue light allowed. You can use the slider control to  choose how much of the blue light is going to be filtered. If you increase the strength of the filter, it will block more blue light and the screen will look paler.
  4. If you want to enable the scheduling of the blue light filter then it is also possible. We can choose at what time the blue light filter is to become active automatically. Similarly, we can choose at what time the blue light filter is to be taken off.Windows 11 Blue Light Filter

After enabling the blue light filter which comes built inside Windows 11, you should expect less eye strain on your eyes and a much better sleep at night.
