Lock Screen Time Out: Will Windows 10 for Phone include the never option?

Question: Lock Screen Time Out: Will Windows 10 for Phone include the never option?

The 30 seconds, 1 minute, 3 minutes, 5 minutes screen time out is useless to me.
Anyone else feels my frustration? Does anyone know if Win10 will fix this?

Preferred Solution: Lock Screen Time Out: Will Windows 10 for Phone include the never option?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Missing Phone lock option on windows 10

In settings->personalisation, use the "lock screen" option. Scroll to the bottom to find "sign in options".
Passcode set up is in there.

Answer:lock screen - windows spotlight option not working

I believe the Windows 10 sign in image must be disabled first, as I've never been able to get a customization to stick without disabling it

To disable the sign in image, open regedit (winkey + R, then regedit) and copy/paste the following into the nav bar:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System
Create new DWORD:
DisableLogonBackgroundImage
Set value data: 1
For spotlight, are you setting it simply to allow a custom lock screen image, or do you want to use the actual spotlight feature, which pulls images randomly from Bing depending on your preferences? If it's the latter, someone else will need to chime in as I've never wanted or used that.

However, if it's the former, and you're simply looking to utilize your own custom image for the lock screen:
Navigate to C:\Windows\Web\Screen and paste your custom image
Rename the pasted image to img100.1
You cannot simply replace one of the 6 default images, as SFC and certain updates will delete the file since it won't have parity with the WinSxS component store.I recommend renaming it img100.x, as that will ensure it's the first image shown in Settings - Personalization - Lock screen
In regards to showing app statuses on the lock screen:

If it's an app that shows internet content (Weather, News, Feeds, Facebook, etc), I've always had to open the app once on the desktop and allow it load in order for a firewall rule to be created. Once done, it should show content on the lockscreen. In regards to... Read more

I remember few months back there was a rumor of pattern lock screen Coming to WP.Windows Phone 8.1 Updates to bring Pattern unlock to Live Lock Screen

Answer:Is there a Pattern lock screen for Windows Phone?

After reading the link, it looks to be a rumoured feature as well as it looked to be tied into the Live Lock app. Seeing as the Live Lock beta app does not currently have said feature i will have to go with no. It is possible it will come in a future update to the Live Lock beta app or through GDR if Live Lock screen becomes incorporated into the OS like Glance on most Nokia devices.

Hi guys.
My Lumia 930 (OS Version 8.10.104266.359) has just this morning started demanding that I set a complex password consisting of 4 characters, a number, a capital letter, a lower case letter, and the blood of a chinchilla. This is just to get passed my lock screen.
I've gone into all the settings options, there is no option to turn password off any more, it's locked as "ON".
I've never had a password on my phone as I find them frustrating, especially with such ridiculous requirements.
In my opinion the best way to protect your information is to not give your phone to the sort of nob who would snoop through your information. Whether I'm right or wrong, I'd at least like the option to make that decision myself.
Anyone else seeing this? Is there a way I can disable it?
I'm in the UK on O2, the phone is fully up to date.
Thanks for the help.

Answer:Windows Phone 8.1 - Can no longer disable complex password for the lock screen. Help?

I frequently am logging in and out of my Windows 8.1 laptop. I have a good, secure password that I use and because I'm human, sometimes I mistype it. The issue is that on these occasions, I am locked out for a good 30 seconds from attempting to
login, even for the second time.

I can understand the time delay if it were say, my 5th or 6th attempt, but for one attempt this is entirely too long. How do I go about significantly reducing this, or ideally removing it?

Thank you very much!

So, I have searched the internet for what I am trying to find but the only thing that comes up is how to add a timer that will turn the display off after a certain time WHILE the lock-screen is on. That's not what I am asking.

What I am asking is if there is a way to auto-lock the computer after a certain amount of time. I know you can activate a screensaver after a certain amount of time, and then once touched again it will show up at the lockscreen. That's not what I want. I have the lock-screen setup to play a slideshow of pictures that I want to play when not in use. (This is a 58" touchscreen display that is used to interact with a powerpoint presentation in a public area). If I leave the desktop screensaver option on, it'll turn off the lockscreen slides. Why does that matter if the slideshow is running you may be asking? Well, I have a script on the desktop of this computer that will lock the computer with a single click. This is because when someone is done doing a presentation, I want them to be able to lock the screen immediately so that when they walk away someone can't just walk by and start messing with a wide-open computer.

So, idk if this is possible or if someone has a better solution but i'd appreciate any input.

Hi,

apologies if this has been covered before somewhere else.
I am trying to remove the time and date from the lock screen. having searched I have seen several customisation options but the only one that actually covered this specifically was to make a change in regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

this brought about issues relating to administrator accounts which seem to be a common problem with windows 8.1.
nearly all of the solutions were not available to me but I finally found I could make the change in regedit by changing ownership of the file and changing the format of the time to a space. unfortunately the date is still showing.
how can I remove the date?

further, just to clarify, does the original account I signed in with have full administrator privileges? are they disabled and need to be enabled?
ive seen the tutorial on the built in elevated administrator account, this didn't work on its own either. do some files require a change of ownership to be altered regardless of which account you are signed in with including the administrator account?

any help appreciated

thanks

Brad

The whole thing started to appear around 3 days ago. The problem is that everytime I boot, windows 10 stays on a weird lock screen without any buttons for a long long time. There are just 4 icons in the bottom right corner (shut down, accesibility, ethernet...) It sometimes manages to get to desktop, and sometimes not. Not sure what caused it, could be a recent windows update, not sure tho. I ran some HDD scans and everything turned out fine, also did a registry cleanup, tried disabling lock screen, and nothing seems to work. Any suggestions or solutions?

Answer:Windows 10 stuck at lock screen for a long time

Welcome to the TenForums @Taukonza

Could you please review your update history and see if any updates for Windows or Drivers were installed in last week?

You mentioned when you boot. Not sure if this is happening on restart or power on or both. If it is power on booting can I suggest a quick test. Open a command prompt (admin) and type

powercfg -h off

This will disable hibernation and in turn Fast Startup. Test. If no change you can re-enable by typing

powercfg -h on

After you boot have you reviewed your Event Viewer to see if Windows is kicking out any serious errors to the system log?

So the word is that phones will 'run Windows 10.' Does that mean the main OS and its apps will be pretty much the same accross devices, including the Family Safety feature? One complaint I had with Windows 8+ phones was that Family Safety was significantly different, containing less feautres, compared to the desktop OS.

Answer:Will Windows 10 Phone include all features of Family Safety?

It looks like they will be the same but only by removing all the features from Windows family safety so it's now at the same low level that Windows Phone is!

Hi

For some reason I have not got the shutdown options within the Lock Screen. They are only in the login but I want to have them in the Lock Screen as I may find myself unable to access login screen sometime in the future. I would like to have that functionality.

I have confirmed the option in my Security Policies is set to disabled but I'm guessing this is not the correct setting. Please advise, as I know it's possible but cannot find the option at the moment. I'm guessing it is most likely in the registry somewhere but have not checked there as yet. Thanks!

Answer:No shutdown option from within Lock Screen

Press and hold the power button. Or set the power button option, in Advanced Power Options, to Shut Down the system for both AC powered and Battery powered.

Not sure why you wouldn't be able to access the login screen. No need to actually Log In. That option is available from the Log In screen where you type in your password.

Hello, I have a windows 10 laptop and I am the only user. My administrator username is George Michaels.
Recently when I start the PC, I get 2 options for user login- George Michaels where I click to enter my password and a second option which is George (without the Michaels). When selecting the second option, 2 boxes appear, one for username and one for a password.
I want to delete the second login option since when the PC starts, it automatically takes me to the second George and a pop up says I entered the wrong password. It is annoying I only want my account to appear, not the option to sign in with different username and passwords.
When I go to control panel user settings to delete it, I can't find it since this new George is not a user it is rather just a way to log in with different username and password.

Currently have a Lumia 720 and maximum time out is 5 mins which does not help with golf GPS apps such as Free Caddy as it locks soon after each shot rather than be free flowing. May upgrade to 735 if 'never' function is available - as it seems to be in a random selection of Lumias.

Answer:Does the Nokia Lumia 735 have a 'Never' option for the Lock Screen Timeout?

It's not a random selection but a ROM limited feature. Some ROM variants have it, some don't. Same could be said about the static IP option in Wi-Fi settings and field test mode. I don't have a 720 myself so can't really tell you which ROM had it enabled but if you managed to find one you can always flash to that ROM to get the lacking features, a phone change is really not needed.

Most apps such as Dropbox/Box or other cloud stuff can be logged into via desktop.
If it's messages or contacts those items will also be saved to cloud services and they should reappear by signing in with the current MS account on any other Windows based phone.

Answer:Cannot set option to include Office updates in Windows Updates

Hi there

When you installed office did you install from an ISO or somewhere like MSDN download. For these Office will be updated in the normal Windows update (set in the options of windows update to get updates for ALL Ms products rather than just Windows).

If you installed via the Online application then you can get updates by going into Office Account and then clicking the Update Office icon. These won't be handled by the standard check for updates in windows update. This is for Office 2016 and Office 365. For Office 2010 there's no change -- don't know about Office 2013 --never used it.

Hello, I like seeing AM/PM on any time value. I already know if it's AM or PM, but it looks more Proper to see the AM or the PM with whatever time it is.

What Registry modification/Program can help me achieve this?

Thanks

Answer:AM/PM For The Time At The Lock Screen

You can change the time format, how time is shown on Windows notification area freely but AM / PM is regardless of your settings never shown in Windows Clock and lock screen if 24 hour clock has been selected.

To change how time is shown on Windows desktop, select Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Region, click Additional settings:



Now change time formats manually typing any of the following values for short time. Add :ss for long time for seconds:

h:mm
12 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

h:mm tt
12 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

hh:mm
12 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

hh:mm tt
12 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

H:mm
24 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

H:mm tt
24 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

HH:mm
24 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

HH:mm tt
24 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

Here I have selected 24 hour clock with AM / PM, but it's only shown in notification area. Opening clock does not show AM / PM, nor does lock screen, whatever settings I have chosen as long as I am using 24 hour clock:



Using 12 hour clock AM / PM is always shown in Clock and lock screen if selected.

Answer:How do I disable my Nokia Lumia 730 screen after an automatic phone lock?

The lockscreen's purpose is to protect your device from accidentally responding to unwanted touch events (e.g. while carrying the device in one of your pockets). Or - if using a PIN protected lockscreen - to restrict access to the device itself. The reason why the screen goes black/off after a while should be very obvious. It does it to reduce battery consumption.
I'm sure there's no way to disable that.

I have several people calling me today asking why their screen dims at 6pm every day on the dot. Is this some new feature in the X220 and can someone please tell me how to turn it off. If I had one myself I think I could figure it out.

Answer:Does the x220 have option to dim screen at a set time?

Power Manager Click on Advanced (upper right) Power Agenda tab That's where such things would be located. You can set a number of timed events in there, including changing the brightness. If they all work for the same company, it's possible their IT department has a scheduled event in there, in case people left their laptop on after hours and it's using unnecessary power, but I doubt it would come from Lenovo preset to do so. I hope that helps.

Anyone else seeing this issue? If I put my tablet into standby when I wake it I don't get the lock screen and it just goes straight to the start screen or whatever app I was using. If I put it into standby again then I'll get the lock screen the next time I wake it but then the next time it won't appear again. I've checked and it's literally every other time.

Hello, I used to use a reg file for Windows 8.1 to customize the time until the screen turns off during the Lock Screen Time Out. I want to know if that command still applies for Windows 10.

The reg file command is:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen]
"SlideshowDuration"=dword:000493e0
(where the screen turns off after 5 minutes).

I have the formula to figure out what you need to calculate to insert after "dword" for the amount of time until the screen times out (goes black). Ask me for the formula... as long as the above works.

Thanks

Answer:Lock Screen Slideshow Time Out

Never mind. I went into the Registry and checked it out.

Yes, the same exact rules apply here like in Windows 8.1

A newbie type question: I'd like to try Macrium free. The install process provides the options to include or exclude WinPE. I'd rather not include it if it's not needed. What are the pros and cons to excluding it? I'm running Win7x64.

IIUC, WinPE is a sorta compact version of Windows, intended for loading from an external bootable disc, in order to recover the internal OS drive. If it needs to be on an external disc, why install it (along with Macrium) to the OS disc?

Thanks for any advice, -Ron

Answer:Macrium Install Option to include WinPE: needed?

I have Macrium (and used to have Acronis True Image). I make the WinPE rescue discs rather than the standard rescue discs which are Linux. I had a problem with the Linux disc loading on one of my desktops and on the other desktop it wasn't recognizing one hard drive. I created a WinPE rescue disc and the loading on the one PC and the hard drive detection problem on the other were gone.

I am having my company laptop which has disabled wait time option for screen saver. the default setting is 15 min wait time for screen server. How can i enable it .. Pls help me on this.

Answer:XP Screen saver wait time option enabling

this is a really commonly asked question actually. I assume you mean you want to enable the disabling of the wait time option at all instead of putting in an utterly incorrect 9999 minutes lol. Apparently you open the screen saver settings on the display properties by right clicking on an empty spot on the desktop then clicking properties. Then go to the screen saver tab and either change the selected screensaver itself to None or type 0 into the wait time. Both will disable it.

EDIT: I actually just tried to type 0 in my own and it wouldn't let me. That's really odd as I'm pretty sure it used to work. So just change the screen saver selected to (none) which is the first choice on the list. This disabled wait time completely.

Hello,
First I want to point out that the "Play a slide show on the lock screen" is not the option that I'm looking for, since it remembers the original image that was set for the lock screen after I log back in, or restart the computer.

I am looking for an option that will always load a random picture from a certain folder to appear as my lock screen, every time the lock screen appears.
So for example, I turn on the computer and I see Image #1. I log into my account and after a few minutes I lock the computer. When I lock the computer, I want to see Image #7 as the lock screen. Now I restart the computer. Windows shuts down and starts up again. I am now at the lock screen again. I want to see Image #4. (The reason why those image numbers are like that is because they're random).

So does anyone know of an option in Windows that can do that, or a 3rd party program that can do that?

Thanks so much

Hey guys, I have been having a pretty major dilemma with my computer. So basically:
A few days ago (January 11, 2018), I downloaded the new windows update (forget the name every time ). It was initially working out quite well. Fast forward to like four o' clock, when I leave home for a few hours. I then come back to my computer, awakening it from its sleep, and then the lock screen is utterly broken. It appears as a white screen with red and green (maybe blue too???) lines running to and fro. My cursor as well appeared as a jumbled mess of black pixels. I have been dealing with this dilemma for the past few days (today is January 16 2018 at time of writing), and I have had no luck searching for help. If you have any knowledge of what is happening, or can offer help, then please offer it, that will be wonderful.

Answer:In windows phone data connection there is no option for only 3G?

If you select "3G" to be the highest connection speed but your phone goes back to 2G (or E), then it appears that there is no compatible 3G coverage in the area where your phone is currently in. Forcing your phone to go to 3G only will either result is loss of connection or rapid battery drain. Check with your mobile service provider if 3G connection is supported in your area. Also, check with them if they support the band frequencies which the Lumia 535 supports - this can be seen in the Microsoft website depending on what Lumia 535 variant you have.

You need to save those photos to your Photo Hub first*. Only then would you be able to view them in your computer when you connect your phone.
*Technically, the photos are "in" your phone, but Windows Phone Sand Boxing creates isolated spaces for apps to run in, effectively preventing app data from being accessed by third parties. Thus, all photos in any app (not those in Photo Hub) cannot be viewed by a different app unless they are in the Photo Hub.

Hello,

I have created a training course for fellow employees at my company, and I have set deadlines for them in this training course. I have emails set up that announce posts and deadlines. Some of the deadlines include times. I have included an iCal button that allows the users to export the deadlines to their Outlook 2013 calendars (we have Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus) . That works great, but there is a problem. No matter what I specify when I establish the deadline on my training site (Moodle 2.9) , the iCal button only allows me to export it as an all-day event.
Below is the html code for the iCal button. I copy and paste this code into the email I want to send to everyone via Moodle (after clicking the "<>" button), and it results in a functional iCal button:

</div></form></div><ahref="http://pcwbtrn2/moodle/calendar/export_execute.php?preset_what=all&amp;preset_time=recentupcoming&amp;userid=863&amp;authtoken=5ce4550770669a1e4cc608b642aae1ed2120f269"title="Quick download / subscribe to calendar"class="ical-link">iCal</a></div></div></div></div>

Is there something I can add to the code in order to make it specify the time in Outlook?
Or is there something else I can do to make this happen? Attached is a screenshot of a deadline I created in Moodle.
