If you enjoy watching movies & Youtube on Edge browser, this is a cool extension – Turn off the Lights, by Stefan VD. It’s a handy little extension that dims the background around the video window, cutting out distractions. Here’s what it looks like:

I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks and have encountered only one issue – it popped out and stopped working until I shut Edge down and restarted it. Other than the one instance, I’ve had no other problems. Get it the usual way, Microsoft Store ->Extensions->Turn off the Lights. Once installed, it sits on the screen’s toolbar within easy clicking distance.

The image still is from Professor Quatermass and the Pit – BBC sci fi serial from the 1950s. One of the best sci fi series ever made. Go watch it … no .. go .. now… Watch it.  Where else can you see extinct giant Martian grasshoppers destroying humanity?
