    Windows 10 - Laptop locks after 1 minute despite numerous changes to increase it


    Windows locks my computer after 1 minute. Sleep and hibernate settings are also below. I added the key to unhide 'System Unatteneded sleep timeout' and set that to 20 minutes. I added the key to unhide 'Console lock display off timeout' set that to 20 minutes. I set the screensaver settings and unchecked 'On resume, display logon screen'.I set the GPO for 'Interactive Logon: Machine inactivity limit' to 1200 secondsI disabled fingerprint unlock and set to ONLY use a PIN, set Hello 'Require Sign-in' to 15 minutes.This damn thing keeps locking after a minute, maybe 2 if I'm lucky. Help?

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Windows 10 / 1 minute lock screen problem

    Being an Apple user, but my wife asked me!! not keyed up on Windows, l read up on possible causes! by this time my wife was pulling her hair out! trying to set her windows 10 laptop from going into 1 minute lock screen.

    l went all through the "regedit" procedures, taking photos prior to any modifications l tried, but still 1 minute lock screen was happing. Going back to my Microsoft day's, l couldn't locate the "Screen Saver" app anywhere, so l entered "screen saver" where
    l've been entering "regedit" and "power options" etc in the search box; and a small box popped up on the screen headed "screen saver" showing the setting for 1 minute, l didn't want to increase the time duration here, which would of only taken a second to
    do, l choose the option not to set anytimes here ie either tick or untick the box as stated and set and control the time in the lock screen facility in "Windows settings".

    Like most things once you know it literary took a couple of seconds to fix. Obvious to the wiz kids; but not so obvious to some?
