Night Light fix

The latest version of Windows 10 Creators Update offered a slew of new features, with one of the most useful being the Night Light. This feature blocked the notorious blue light emitted by the display when evening sets in. Blue light is considered to disturb the circadian sleep cycle and will trick the brain into believing that it’s not nighttime yet. The quality of a person’s sleep is also adversely affected by blue light.

The feature has now made it to several smartphone operating systems and also other computer operating system alongside other blue light-taming apps like the much-acclaimed f.lux. In the recent past, Windows Insiders running the latest Windows 10 Builds have complained that a certain Nvidia update breaks the Night Light feature.

The worst part, however, is that the driver update is also breaking f.lux or another third party software that promises to filter the blue light. The culprit seems to seek refuge in the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 16288 which comes with Nvidia GeForce driver v387.68. The bad driver update has also caused stuttering during gameplay. That being said one can get the Night Light working by following the steps given below.

How to fix Night Light issues on PC

  1. Click on the Start
  2. Search for “Device Manager” and then press enter
  3. Expand Display adapters
  4. Select GPU option by double-clicking
  5. Click the Driver Tab
  6. Click Roll Back Driver, fill the corresponding feedback form that asks you for reasons to roll back
  7. Wait for some time and ignore the “Not Responding message”

With the driver rolled back the Night Light should start working just fine along with f.lux. Microsoft will surely iron out the issue but with the rollout date for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rollout nearing a lot is at stake.
