    My screen saver keeps resetting itself


    My screen saver keeps resetting itself to one minute after boot up, and then doesn't come on till I actually reset it back to four minutes. This happens after restarting my machine. I remember this happened to me years ago in XP, but can't remember what fixed it.

    :)

    Windows 10 Screen Saver wait time keeps resetting to 1 minute

    Hello Dottie,

    We'd like to get more information regarding this so we could further check and provide a more established workaround. Any changes made to the system that might have caused the issue? And do confirm the current build your Windows 10 is running, as this information
    is vital for us to proceed with the investigation. (Type winver
    into the Cortana search box, then hit Enter.)




    If you've tried to troubleshoot issues prior to posting your concern here in the Community, please provide the exact steps performed so we can further advise workaround.

    If you haven't yet tried the workaround provided by MichaelBuchser, it is worth checking if that would do the trick.

    Furthermore, if the issue persists even after following the mentioned method above, we might need to isolate by creating a new user profile, then check if you'd get the same thing there. See

    Create a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
    for guidelines.

    We will keep an eye out for your update on this.

    Regards.

    If you have Pro or Ultimate Windows run gpedit.msc as Administrator. Go to User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Control Panel/Personalization/

    Enable the Policy for Screensaver timeout, enter any value (for exaple 300 for 5mins).

    Klick OK

    Check if change has been applied (in Screensaver Window, the new value should be shown and greyed out).

    You can now safely disable the policy, you should be able to set your desired timeout in the Screensaver Window.
