With Windows 10, how can I turn off 'Lock-out'? If I am away from my computer for one minute, I have to re-enter my pin #. I would like to turn this off completely, or extend the time before it locks.

  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Select Settings, then Personalization.
  3. Choose Lock screen from the left pane.
  4. Scroll the right pane down and click Screen saver settings.
  5. Change the screen saver timeout. If no screen saver is selected, computer will just lock after this timeout.
