The Night light feature in Windows 11 is used to reduce eye strain. If you’re still having trouble seeing what’s on your screen, try using the built-in color filters in Windows 11. It will assist you in distinguishing between items that only differ in color. This alters the color palette of objects on the screen, increasing contrast and possibly allowing you to see more clearly. People with vision loss or color vision deficiencies may benefit from Windows 11’s built-in color filters.
Adjust Color Filters in Windows 11
- Press the Windows + I keys to launch the Settings app.
- From the left sidebar of the Windows Settings window, select Accessibility.
- Select Color Filters from the right-hand sidebar.
- Toggle the toggle switch next to Color filters to On in the Color filters settings.
- Following that, there are six filters to choose from. The following are some of them:-
Red-green (green weak, deuteranopia)
Red-green (red weak, protanopia)
Select the color filter that you’d like to use.
- When you choose a filter, it will be applied automatically and immediately. Scroll up the window to the “Color filter preview” section if you want to see a preview of the filter’s effects. A color wheel, a sample photo, and a color grid can all be found here.
That is all there is to it. Color filters have now been applied. Toggle the toggle switch beside “Keyboard shortcut for color filters” to “On” if you want to enable the quick keyboard shortcut to turn on/off color filters.
Toggle color filters on and off by pressing Windows + Ctrl + C on your keyboard at any time now that you’ve enabled the shortcut.
