    windows 10 night light when on cycles dimming


    I have windows 1903 Build 18362.329 installed on my desktop and I'm using the windows night light in the settings. Lately (not sure just when it started) I've noticed that when it is on about every 2-5 minutes I notice my monitors will dim just enough to be very noticeable and then brighten to the night light level. The dimming/brightening is a gradual process (about a 10-second cycle) and is very annoying. If the night light is NOT on then the monitors do not dim/brighten. As a test, I turned the night light off and installed f.lux (it is now on) so far it has not dimmed/brightened and it has been at least 30 minutes since f.lux turned on.


    I've searched for a solution but so far I have not found a solution. Obviously I can stay with f.lux but I'm attempting to remove all software where windows provide the same function, assuming that the windows code is as good or better than the add-on.


    My graphic card (NVIDIA GTX 470 Graphic Card) has the latest drivers from NVIDIA and were installed two days ago. Prior to the installation, I had the night light issue. I installed the latest drivers to see if that would resolve the issue.

    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.
