Humpday Hint: Windows 10's New Colour Filters

Contributing Author: Flicka Ninetails

One of the new features in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update from Microsoft® is called color filters and is supposed to help people with color blindness use the operating system just like anyone else.

The new color filters are applied at system levels and include six different settings to make it easier for color-blind users to differentiate between colors, like red and green.

Furthermore, Microsoft says that its filters can help people with light sensitivity to create and consume content, as they adjust all displayed images no matter if they are part of the operating system or not.

The available filters are Greyscale, Invert, Greyscale Inverted, Deuteranopia, Protanopia, and Tritanopia, and are placed under:

Settings > Ease of Access > Color and High Contrast

Setting them up does not require a system reboot and all changes are applied instantly.
