    Why would I want to mess with screen colors? Hmmm.... I suppose it's something like mountain climbing. Question: "Why did you climb Mt. Rainier?" Answer: "Because it's there."

    I've tried and used f.lux before and it works as advertised. However, since most my units guts/innards (motherboard) & other various hardware are now rather dated, it was the better part of valor to exercise some precaution to prevent premature hardware failure. I found that such apps can tax the controls and electronic circuitry in older systems.

    Doesn't mean I won't try them out. But does mean in this camp of now older yet still durable machines, we don't mind experimenting with fancy lighting/screen controls but won't sign on to using any permanently.

    Since 20H2 and the latest NVIDIA driver, Windows Night Light does a competent job for me. I've also used f.lux when the Windows counterpart wasn't able to for a while there.

    Trying to keep unnecessary third party stuff at bay if Windows can do the job without a hassle.

    Good Point!

    Completely escaped my attention. Not deliberately but in keeping away from Windows 10 and focusing strictly with 8.1 for many months it is/was a very welcome feature that I can say with much confidence that I found about Windows 10 aesthetics per the auto light dimming feature.

    f.lux has the ability to actually dim the screen along with changing the screen temperature. Also f.lux changes the screen temp automatically based on the time of day.
