Windows 10: Use default location for scheduled Night Light

Discus and support Use default location for scheduled Night Light in Windows 10 Customization to solve the problem; Why is it not possible to use scheduled Night Lights when you have set a default location but have location access turned off?

  1. Use default location for scheduled Night Light


    Why is it not possible to use scheduled Night Lights when you have set a default location but have location access turned off?


    It does not make sense as:


    1. Setting a default location is more precise as location access uses ISP information (or something like that) to determine you location, which might not be in the same part of the country as you are.


    2. If you use a VPN your location could be set to another country on the other side of the world. (ie. you live in Europe, use an American VPN and suddenly your sunset/sunrise information is at least 5 hours off.

  2. Night light

    Location services are on, and the message said if I want to schedule night light to sun rise and set I must turn the services on. And I did that, and nothing happened except for that it changed times for night light from what I scheduled it to sun rise
    and sun set .

  3. 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.
