How do I set the time limit for screen lock

Windows 8 keeps locking the screen, seems maybe 1 minute after not touching it. I would like to set that to something like 20 minutes, but I can't see where to do that?

Preferred Solution: How do I set the time limit for screen lock

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: How do I set the time limit for screen lock

Try looking in Control Panel under Power Option settings.
You can adjust for Battery and Power options / to your needs.

Hey all...

Does anyone know of some good free (or inexpensive) software that will install on top of WinXP and control/limit usage on the computer by certain accounts? I'm specifically looking for software that will allow a certain user account to stay logged in for a limited amount of time.

I'm building a PC for my aunt and one of the things she really wants is to have some sort of software that will actively enforce a time limit for each of her kids' computer usage.

Of primary concern is the time limit functionality, logging of sessions would be good too but not totally necessary. The software should be fairly bullet proof because kids are smart these days.

Any idears?
 

Answer:Software to limit kids usage of the family PC (time limit, etc)

I am not really sure, but i will help with some research, i know if you have a fairly decent router you can control times of the internet, but not sure on pc usage itself

I was wondering if it was possible to set something so that no matter who logs into the computer the screen saver will never come on and the monitor will never turn off and how to do it. We are on a domain here and use Terminal Services, so we don't want this to disconnect our sessions. Thanks.

Answer:Disable Screen Saver and Turn Off Monitor after certain time limit for all users

The only way to do it is to login as each user and set it up. I am pretty sure there is not a way to make it unversal.

Is there any way to keep the lock screen from shutting me down if I don't do anything on the keyboard for a minute or 2 minutes, or whatever it is? I followed some instructions that I found on the internet that involve adding ".bak" or ".backup" to the lock screen file in "SystemApps" but it didn't have any effect. Then I clicked on "Settings" in the Start menu and got totally lost in all that stuff.

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.

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

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.

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!

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

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?

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?

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.
EDIT: Oh, forgot to include this, but I have tried a malwarebytes scan (probably at January 12, 2018), but it did not come up with anything important.

The last two weeks I've been facing the following problem with the RTS game Lord of the Rings: BFME 2. After 3' 30" of real time gameplay I suddenly lose. I have checked all the settings to make sure there is not a timer on. The problem does not exist in the turn-based mode. A friend of mine told me that a seemingly irelevant program (internet using program) could be responsible. I uninstalled Earth 3d, e-mule and Game Spy Arcade. I also had weatherscope installed and since I could find no uninstall.exe file, I manually deleted it from C:/Program files. The only remaining on-line program is Google Desktop and the problem is still here.

In WXP, how do you limit the amount of time available before a screensaver comes on? I know you right click on the desktop, go to properties, screensaver and then there is a time available before screensaver comes on. How do you limit the amount of time available to the PC? I.E. instead 600 minutes, 400 minutes, I want to limit the option to 10 minutes, so my kids dont leave the screen on forever when I amnot home. They learned how to change it, and instead of fighting it all the time, I just want to limit the availability of extra time.
I have them set up with there own user accounts too. Thanks, Steve

Answer:How to limit screensaver time available to operator.

Press Windows Key + R, type gpedit.msc, press OK. The Group Policy Editor is launched.

Hi,

I want to downgrade my PC from Vista Business (running for about a year) to XP Pro. I have all the necessary discs, I just wanted to know if there is a time limit for doing it?

I've looked at previous posts on downgrading but there is no mention of a time limit.

Hope you can help.

Thanks, turner2000
 

Answer:Time limit to downgrade from Vista to XP

As most parents know, getting the kids off the PC is a nightmare. Does anybody know if there any programs out there that can set a time limit on internet access?

but what might, perhaps, be easier issettings in your router?I have a Linksys router and in the settings I can set times when access is permitted, for individual PCs.It's not something I have done, for I've no need to, but it looks to be really easy.I presume what you want is an actual "sum" of the hours, rather than a "window" of time, which is what my suggestions provides, but it might ultimately achieve what you want; less tiem on the internet?Good luck,Regards,Simsy

I need to know is how to limit the run time of msn messenger. I can't seem to find anything, I've try googeling, and using firewall rules, but none have time limit specifications available.

I also don't want to buy anything, and if avoidable I dont' want any parental control programs and that junk. Maybe just a time limit program or add-in if anyone knows of something. Suggestions????

All I want is to set a time limit for say 1 hour per day that msn messenger can run on the comp. can this be acheived through msconfig or something???

Dose anyone have an idea on how to log out users that are idle on Windows 7?

I work for a company that has computers in general areas, anyone can walk up and login and use it for business. Many of my users don't log off and later when they change their password these machines lock out their AD accounts. I was thinking that we could use the group policies that are used for terminal services to log out after being idle for x amount of time.

The problem is that when I go in to add the time limit to my account it says it only works for standard users.

They can't upgrade to 10 because a lot of the software they use for their work is extremely buggy and just about works on Win7 and 8.1 - She has been advised by the IT people working for her company not to upgrade to 10 until they give everyone the all clear to do so.

My question is, if I use the media creation tool on her laptop now to create an ISO, would that mean she could do the upgrade for free beyond this July?
I have read that it's necessary to do an inplace upgrade first in order to generate the necessary hardware id codes etc, but Im wondering if it's goes past the 12 month free period, if that notification will be gone or the ISO on the system will be useless?

I may have never noticed this in Windows 10 but after the 1607 anniversary update was released I noticed that Mail notifications that turned on the Action Center Icon and the Email subject and sender information in the action center, over time, would disappear without any intervention on my part. To be clear an email notification would arrive and the Action Center Icon would change to indicated that a notification was received and the details of that notification were listed in the action center but (A) I did not click on the action center icon (B) I did not open the built-in Mail application and (C) I did not open Outlook 2010. However, after being absent from my PC for a period of time, I noticed that the action center icon was no longer showing a notification and when I did finally open the action center there were no notifications there either. What I seem to remember was that prior to the 1607 anniversary update, if you clicked on the action center icon the icon would remove the notification highlighting but to actually remove the notifications themselves from the action center I had to either clear the individual notification or clear all notification or open Outlook 2010 and download my mail.

Today I noticed that the URLs in my address bar of IE9 (64-bit) is completely empty. This is strange to me, because the same list of URLs has been present for 2-3 years and I didn't clear browsing history or anything.

Some background that might be helpful: This not my personal IE browser. It's accessed within a system through my work network. It opens as the default browser when I click on a pre-set tab within a password-protected software platform my work uses. I can also access this browser when I am logged in remotely. For the past 2-3 years, I've been able to access all the URLs in the address bar dropdown--no matter my location--and now they're gone.

My question is, why is the URL bar suddenly empty, when I know I didn't delete anything or clear any history? I'm wondering if they "timed out" -- is there a time limit on how long IE stores address bar entries? Or, Could it be that my workplace's system admin reconfigured/updated some sort of setting, and that's why they're gone?

Any help or insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Sam

Answer:Time limit on how long IE9 stores address bar entries?

Hello my friend....

Is it possible someone else could have logged onto your computer and then cleared history? (I see you mentioned it is on a network) -- address bar entries ARE STATIC (They wont ever be removed unless you clear them/have your browser set to clear them when closed)

When I connect to a remote Windows server using Windows native RDP/Remote Desktop Connection from my WinXP PC, I've got about 30 seconds to select a logon account and/or type in the password. We've recently introduced two-factor authentication for OS logon. In some cases where the remote server is slow, or there's a network lag because the server is on the other side of the globe, that 30 seconds isn't long enough for the remote server to read/interpret the cert on my smartcard and give me the opportunity to enter my smartcard password. At times, the screen just begins to give me the password field, and then it times out and ends the session. Is there some setting (either on my PC or on the remote servers) that can be changed to allow a longer period of time to enter logon credentials? Like, increase it to 45 seconds before timeout? I've been unsuccessful in finding anything online about how to extend this setting. I've looked at the Local Computer policy settings on my PC to see if any GPO's are setting that 30-second timeout -- nothing seems to be coming down from GP that I can see.

I wish to have my email messages held on the ISP server deleted 20 days after they have been transferred to my PC, to limit the number that get transferred to my netbook when I am away on holiday. (i.e. Delete all those that have been read / dealt with on my main PC.)

Leave a copy of messages on server (tick or untick)
Remove from Server after -- days (Can choose any number of days up to a maximum of 100 days)

I've searched everywhere for a solution to this but have not found anything outside of restarting the machine.
I need to limit a Windows 7 computer to only allow one user logged in at a time. This machine has applications only allow one user to run them at a time. So if a user locks this machine and walks off and if the next user switches user and logs in, none of
the programs will work because the first user's session is now suspended.
Is there anything that will kick the suspended user off? So if a user forgets to log out and the screen is locked, the second user's login would force the first user to log off?

Answer:Limit a Windows 7 machine to 1 user login at a time

You can disable the locking function altogether so the initial user can't occupy the machine. (They will have to log off or risk leaving the machine unattended while still logged in.)
It is a registry change, check out:

Can anyone tell me how to eliminate the lock screen preview and bypass the 'Sign In' button on the lock screen?

I often put my computer to sleep then to bring it back (in Windows 7) I would simply hit the space bar and turn on my mouse and it would go straight to my desktop. Now, I hit the space bar turn on my mouse, and it takes me to the lock screen preview then I hit the space bar and it takes me to a lock screen where I have to click 'Sign In' even though I have no password set.

I'm guessing I'll no longer be able to hit the spacebar, turn on my mouse and go directly to the desktop but if I can hit the spacebar, turn on the mouse, then hit the space bar one last time, that would be satisfactory.
