f.lux effects: Grey / Dark Windows. Suggestion



  • Hello everyone!

    I can't say how much I love this app, I have been using it for a long time, plus I have told everyone about it!

    Something new in this version is the visual effects, which changes all the windows appearance (Darkroom makes it all red and black)

    I have had a great problem finding a theme (viruses, dead links, long configuration process, etc) for Windows that can give me a dark visual appearance of the OS. Playing with the f.lux effects I got the idea of having a visual effect that can give me a dark theme without installing and changing so many things to the OS.

    Here an example of a dark Windows:
    Dark Windows 7
    Dark Windows 7
    Dark Windows 10
    Dark Windows 10
    I hope you can consider making an effect like this. Working on the computer for so many hours, the white background of mostly all windows makes my eyes hurt, even at night with the f.lux activated.

    Keep having a great time!



  • The problem with the way f.lux works is, EVERYTHING would be changed. So, that means everything would be black and gray, including the icons. It wouldn't be good at all.

    If you want an appearance like that, then I recommend that you keep searching for a theme that provides it. You're bound to find something. F.lux will not be able to accomplish this.

    Or, use the latest version of f.lux and switch the color temperature to 800K using the keyboard shortcut Alt+Shift+Page Up and Alt+Shift+Page Down and then reduce your monitor's brightness to 0. After that, you might also want to use Alt+Page Down to increase the black level.

    We are excited that so many app developers are putting in night modes and hopefully this will continue. It sounds like you'd like a version of Darkroom that's closer to grayscale. Thanks for the request.

    Thanks for your kind response. You are totally right, and that was something I thought before posting. But, honestly, I don't care much about the Windows icons and colors, especially at night. If I can activate this effect after 7 pm, will be fantastic!

    That's amazing! Gonna wait for it, I'm sure it will be a success. Keep on the good work, lovely app!
