  1. Night light schedule not working


    The "set hours" (not location) option for night light scheduling is not working on my Surface Laptop 3. When the time hits for it to turn on, it doesn't and I have to do so manually and when morning hits for it to be turned off, I again have to do it manually. How do I fix it so that the schedule works?

    :)

  3. Night Light won't turn on on schedule

    Night Light won't get activated on schedule - see screenshot for details. Deactivation works as expected though.

    OS version: Windows 10 1909, but before upgrading from 1803 I experienced the same problem
    Intel GPU driver version: 26.20.100.7463

    Night Light works as expected on my desktop, with seemingly the same programs being installed and the same Windows settings (related to Location, Time etc.)

    Any idea what is wrong and how it can be diagnosed?

    No Night Light

    Hi allisonb1

    Try these steps

    Option 1. Reset Night Light-related Settings on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    If you find the night light in the Action Center or the Settings is greyed out after the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you can fix it with the steps below:

    Step 1. Use Windows shortcut keys Win + i to open Settings.

    Step 2. Go to the Privacy menu.

    Step 3. On the left side, choose the Location tab.

    Step 4. Click the Change button under the Location for this device.

    Step 5. Toggle the switch under the Location for this device to ON.

    Step 6. Toggle the switch under the Location service to ON.

    Step 7. Restart the computer.

    Now check the Action Center or the Settings on your Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to see if the night light feature is available.

    Option 2 . Modify Registry to Fix Night Light Not Working on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    If the methods above didn't work, you may need to modify the registry to fix the greyed-out night light button or the night light not working issue. Note: Windows Registry is a vital database on Windows OS computer. Any misoperation will cause server system
    problems, such as 100% disk usage issue, blue screen issue, endless reboot, etc. So it's important to backup registry before the changes.

    Now let's kill the night light not working and release the pain:

    Step 1. Use Windows shortcut keys Win + R to launch Run.

    Step 2. Type into regedit.

    Step 3. Hit the Enter key.

    Step 4. Copy and paste the path into the address bar of the Registry Editor: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CloudStore\Store\Cache\DefaultAccount

    Step 5. Press the Enter key.

    Step 6. Right-click the key $$windows.data.bluelightreduction.bluelightreductionstate under the DefaultAccount and select the Delete to remove it.

    Step 7. Right-click the key $$windows.data.bluelightreduction.settings and select the Delete.

    Step 8. Restart the computer.

    Then you can go to the Action Center or the Windows Settings. The night light not working issue has been resolved now and the night light button is available.
