How to prevent your eyes from aching after staring at your PC screen all day:Change the screen color to a green tint.

- In the Registry Editor panel, click following this path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Colors > Window.
- Double click the "Window" item, and then change the "Value Data" to “204 232 207” (space between number). Then Click Ok.
- Restart your PC. And your screen will look like the screenshots below.
For Windows 7 users (much easier than Wins 8 users!):
- Right Click > Personalize > Windows Color
- Under the “Item:” dropdown list box, select “Window”. Click “Color 1:” right beside the dropdown list box, and then click “Other”.
- On the color selection panel on the right, key in 85, 104 and 205 for Hue, Sat, and Lum respectively. And then click "Add to Custom Colors". Click “OK”.
- The system will automatically direct you back to the “Window Color” box, just click “Apply” and “OK”, wait for several seconds and you are good to go!
