How can I make f.lux darker?



  • Like customize any aspect of it? The "ember" setting isn't doing it for me, and the programs that can make my screen really dark also cause BSODs :/

    So I'd like to know it this is possible :)



  • What do you mean by "darker"? Redder? You can use Alt+Shift+Page Up and Alt+ Page Down or Alt+Shift+F11 and Alt+Shift+F12 to adjust the the color temperature beyond what the interface lets you do. You can get the color temperature to be 100% red at 800K. If your monitor is still too bright at 800K, then you should turn down your monitor's brightness.

    F.lux can also adjust the black level with Alt+Page Up and Alt+Page Down, or Alt+F11 and Alt+F12. While this won't adjust your monitor's backlight brightness, it still helps.



  • I totally had no idea about those shortcuts...and I've had flux for years lol. I haven't crashed since I started using them, either, although the screen effect used is the same as Dimmer(I think) which crashed me all the time.

    Tyvm for your answer



  • You're welcome.

    All of these keyboard shortcuts are new with Version 4. Some of them didn't even exist until very recently.
