    A bug to disable W10's night light feature?

    Since I was using this PC very late at night earlier, I noticed W10 v1803's screen had a

    yellowish tint color. I thought my VGA cable was an issue, but I didn't see this problem at

    BIOS, boot up, etc. I literally saw white turns to yellowish at W10's login screen every time I

    boot up W10. I can't seem to fix it with How to fix Windows 10 Yellow Tint display issue for good

    suggestions. Disabling night light did not save and change my screen. I did manage to make it

    work if I disable the automatic date and time, and put 1 PM instead of 1 AM. I was able to save

    the change to disable this night light feature. I re-eneabled the automatic date and time, and

    it kept my disabled setting.

    Strange! A bug? Or something broken in this W10 installation?

  4. Is there a general how-to for disabling unwanted W10 apps/features/se?

    How do you disable inprivate browsing (permanently) in Edge on W10 Mobile?

    Hello John,

    When you use InPrivate tabs or window, your browsing data such as your history, temporary internet files, and cookies is not saved on your device once you close/exit the app.
    Thus, disabling InPrivate browsing feature in Microsoft Edge on a Windows 10 Mobile is unavailable.

    Since this feature isn't available, we request that you submit this on our Windows Feedback Hub app to make this feature better. Please follow the steps below:

    • Go to All Apps, search for the Feedback Hub app or press and hold
      Volume Down+Power button for about 2-3 seconds to launch the app.
    • Open the menu icon at the top left side.
    • Select Feedback, then at the top right side, tap the add button (+).
    • Select Suggestion and fill up the box with the details needed.
    • Select the right category for the suggestion and then submit.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to get back to us.
