We all know that looking at the bright screen of a monitor at night is tiring for the eyes. In addition, there are studies that have shown that this leads to poor sleep. The solution is to reduce the brightness of the screen at night and increase it during the day. However, doing this using the buttons on the monitor is not the most convenient way. A much better solution is to use the software.
Introducing ScreenTemperature, a free program for Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10 that lets you quickly and easily change your screen brightness level.
How does ScreenTemperature work?
Unlike programs like f.lux, LightBulb, and Night Shift Redux, ScreenTemperature is much simpler. It does not contain options for automatically changing the brightness of the screen depending on the time of day, you have to do everything manually.
The advantage of this program is that it is incredibly easy to use. The brightness of the screen changes by moving the slider, and the changes are immediately visible, without the need to press additional buttons. For each position, you can see a value on the Kelvin scale, from 2000K to 6600K.
In addition to the mentioned way of changing the screen brightness, there is also an alternative method. Namely, you can select any color, and then move the slider to adjust the temperature level of that color on the screen.
When you find the setup that suits you best, you can save it, so that you can access it quickly later. You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to each saved setting for even faster access.
The option that sets ScreenTemperature apart from the competition and which we really liked is that if you have more than one monitor, you can adjust the brightness level of each monitor separately. When you save the settings, it will be saved for all monitors.
The program also contains the Options tab, and it made us laugh that when we clicked on it and found only one option there. This option is to run the program together with the operating system.
ScreenTemperature is an interesting option for all beginners and those who want the simplest possible program, which does not require much adjustment and messing with a bunch of options, and works great. The fact is that there are other programs on the market that offer more features, but that is not always crucial, and ScreenTemperature is proof of that.
