Windows 8 : Change Windows lock screen time out [Solved]

In Windows 8 there is a standard option to change the display of the lock screen, but this option is hidden by default.

Here is how to change this setting :

There is no way to change the default time out of the Lock screen of 1 minute in control panel – power options

 

Open Registry editor and change the value of the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\7516b95f-f776-4464-8c53-06167f40cc99\8EC4B3A5-6868-48c2-BE75-4F3044BE88A7

Change the value of the DWord Attributes from 1 to 2

Now you see the option ‘Console lock display off timeout’

Change the time to 0, or the preferred minutes.

The lock screen will now show its picture longer.
