  1. Changing Display Settings - reversion timeout


    Does anyone know of any way to change the "settings timeout" when changing display properties?


    For instance: I have a monitor that I share between work and home, and flipping between the two is somewhat convoluted. Long story short, I change the settings on my home Windows 10 machine to use the additional monitor, and then I have to hit a "source" touch button twice. Then the monitor takes about 10 seconds to fully display, at which time (since it's now the main monitor) the timeout for the settings change is close to 0.


    Is there any way to extend this settings change timeout to a larger value? Perhaps someone has a registry key for me to tinker with...

    :)

  3. Unable to change windows 10 timeout

    Unable to change windows 10 timeout

    I have tried all options suggested like;

    • changing lock setting in Persoanlize-lock screen-screen save settings- change wait value (doesnt hold value, whatever I set comes back to 2).
    • Changed registry to enable Power Options-Sleep-Sytem unattended sleep timeout , changed it to 60 min
    • Changed registry to enable Power Options-Display-Console lock display off timeout , changed it to 60 min
    • System file checker tool didnt find any correct/missing files "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833/en-us"
    None of the options work, after 2 minutes my computer locks. Is there any way out of this nightmare or should I switch to older windows?
