How to Automatically Adjust Screen Brightness of PC from Day to Night

During late nights surfing the internet in dark may be comfortable to you but not to your eyes. You might have experienced nights where it’s hard to sleep after you’ve used your PC or Laptop for a long time. You do get options to decrease the brightness, but, who cares when an epic fight is going on between Hulkbuster and Hulk.

Well,  considering the epic fight it might look cool to your eyes but the after effect causes some serious damage. You might have felt that eerie blue glow or when you wake up in the morning to jot down an awesome next Gen idea you get blinded by your PC. This actually happens because of the blue color of your screen.

Monitors are actually created to look like sun, but shouldn’t be the case at night. So, to not waste your time in adjusting screen brightness here’s an application called F.lux that can automatically adjust screen brightness.

Change Location

First you need to set your location. It does automatically track your location but I recommend to add it by yourself. To change the location go to setting in the option 2 hit change and in there add your pin code or city. It’ll track your location through google maps.

What it actually does is reduces the exposure of blue light at night and increases it during the day. This will help you to sleep better at night. So, you’ll get to see a slightly orange color during night. That might feel awkward at first but you should get used to it.
