Now that Windows 11 has officially been released into the beta cycle of the preview build environment, even more people are getting in on all the action. Windows 11 is the most popular Insiders update since the program began which is surprising considering how bad Microsoft’s track record has been with major updates. This time around, however, it seems that they have finally done things right and ticked a lot of boxes.

One of the best new features on Windows 11 is the new Night Light feature which improves on the previous blue light filter in Windows 10. Night Light on Windows 11 allows you to reduce the amount of blue light your screen emits, which is beneficial for a lot of users who struggle with sleep and eye strain.

A little bit of advice before you get started though. If you have a monitor that supports blue light-filtering, and you have it enabled, you may wish to consider using one or the other. As using both Windows blue light filtering (Night Light) and your monitor's blue light filter will give you terrible results. Even if your monitor doesn’t support this feature Windows 11 can handle the task without any issues or quality reduction.
