If you’re the kind that likes to take control of the things on your screen, then you should be aware that Turn Off the Lights app is now available on the Windows 10 Store as a desktop port. The application allows Windows users to dim their screens while working on productivity tasks, and also protects your eyes at night from applications that have a white background.

  • One click on the lamp button to dim the page
  • Support multiple monitors screens
  • Customize the layer tint color/image/video, opacity value up to 100%, keyboard shortcuts
  • Option to start automatically with your computer

  • Option to shows a spotlight around your mouse cursor
  • Option fade effects
  • Option to focus the app in front of the black layer
  • Advanced Eye Protection planner
