    Hey Guys,

    Probably a rudimentary question here, but I use two PCs in a "dual screen" environment. One has Windows 10, the other (my work PC) has Windows 7.

    One thing I'd love to be able to do is lock my Windows 10 screen so it has the time there, any upcoming reminders, and any notification icons while I work on my work PC. That way I can just glance over and get what I need a whim.

    However, as I'm sure we're aware. After locking the PC, about 30 seconds later the screen turns itself off so you can't see the lock screen anymore. As much as I've gone through the settings and control panel, I can't find anything that controls this. Is there anything I can change so the lock screen will at least stay on for say 30 minutes?

    Any guidance is appreciative. Thank you in advance

    I haven't tried it yet (since I have a Win 10 tablet and don't want to drain the battery) but this registry hack might do it for you: How to Change the Windows 10 Lock Screen Timeout

    Backup the registry before making changes (Just Google or search the forums for how to do that)
