    Hi All,

    Is it possible to press or set something and instead of the Start screen being on by default, show the lock screen for most of the time until I need the Start?

    As far as I can find, the lock-screen is only visible for fractions of a second when I wake the phone. I'd rather be seeing my lock-screen image all the time instead of the Start. I am using a PIN to unlock to go to the Start but the lock-screen fades out and goes off in about five seconds if I don't enter the PIN.

    Thanks

    There is a Screen Timeout setting in the Lock Screen settings. I have mine set to 30 seconds

    Alternatively you can set up the Glance Screen so it is on all the time and shows the same notifications as the Lock Screen and can show an image of your choice (although not full screen and of reduced resolution so as to save on battery usage).

    Thanks, but I already had that set to 3-minutes. When I start the phone the lock-screen shows for about 5-seconds then dims and in another 5 or so seconds goes off completely. I just set it to "Never" and still it goes in 10-seconds.
