  1. Dear Author of this Article,

    I thank you with all of my heart for this nice construction.

    I think it is great how Windows enabled this in the system configurations.

    I put it on at all times, because otherwise my eyes would hurt too much.

    Besides, I try to maximalize a certain number of hours spending in front of this Laptop.

    Thank you again,
