Nice. I am gonna check out all of those. I use f.lux, but I hate it, because 90% of outbound requests are made by it.
It is bad especially on mom's computer, it keeps notifying about the new version, eventhough updating is disabled.

EDIT: So, CareUEyes does not change the light based on the time, SunsetScreen does have a fullscreen mode, thus far LightBulb seems like the winner.

EDIT 2: LightBulb is too heavy, it takes 1% CPU nonstop compared to 0-0,03% by f.lux, so back to that one again. :(

Since you use Windows 10, I think that the built in blue light filter on windows 10 (Night Light) would be a good solution without the need of third party software. And, you can set it to turn on automatically at a certain time.
+1 for that. I am using nightlight for some time now and it is a nice built in windows 10 feature , that works flawless ;)

My only grip with F.lux is having to manually launch it at night.
On my computer it starts when I turns the computer on and I also set it to when I want it to go on and when I don't

I just block it at the firewall, job done.

It depends on your computer. In Fall Creators Update, Night Light is finally working and you can change the temperature. That's all I need although I would prefer to also change the time it takes to transition. But before that, I used SunsetScreen. Easily the best, uses far less RAM and a massive amount of customization options.

Yes, but you can only guess the value, I was trying to find the perfect one for months, I am currently settled at 4200/5000. Windows would not tell me that.
