Windows 10 has come with another major update, named as Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Earlier, Creators Update came with so many features, now it’s turn for Fall Creators Update. Some really good features are introduced in this update. One of those features is ‘Color Filters‘. Using this Color Filters feature, you can apply any of the 6 different filters on your Windows 10. Those filters are: Greyscale, Protanopia, Tritanopia, Invert, Greyscale Inverted, and Deuteranopia. As their names’ indicate, these filters are helpful for normal as well as color blind people. This feature is turned off by default. So in this guide, I have covered steps to enable Color Filters and use any of the given filters.
This Color Filters feature is added under Ease of Access setting. You need to access that setting and turn on this feature with filter of your choice.
Before starting, do note that Fall Creators Update is currently available with its preview builds. So if you have to use this feature right now, then you must be using build 16215. Otherwise, you have to wait till Fall Creators Update is released publicly.
You can have a look at the screenshot above where Color Filters is turned on with Greyscale filter.
There is a default hotkey to enable Color Filters, which is “Win+Ctrl+C“. You can use this key to turn on or off Color Filters instantly, but this hotkey is helpful to enable Color Filters with default Filter only (which is Greyscale or some other filter that you will set as default). Therefore, if you want to enable Color Filters with filter of your choice, then you have to access Ease of Access setting.
Let’s See The Steps To Enable Color Filters In Windows 10:
1). Open Settings app. It is very simple. Use Win+I hotkey, though there are many other ways to open it (like Search box and Start menu).
2). In Settings, you will see Ease of Access setting. Click on it.
3). At the left side, there is ‘Color and high contrast‘ option available. Click that option.
4). Now Color Filters feature will visible. Turn on this feature using the associated button. After turning on this feature, you can select any of the available color filters.
Select any filter (as visible in image above) and it will be applied instantly.
For the next time, you don’t have to access Ease of Access setting to apply your favorite filter. Just use Win+Ctrl+C hotkey and the selected filter will be applied.
