Default change settings for screensaver timeout in XP

My screensaver takes over about 2 minutes into any work being performed.

How to lengthen the time before timeout?

Default change settings for screensaver timeout in XP

(Crossposted to m.p.wxp.general, which is about the only XP 'group with
any traffic these days - this was the first post I'd seen in 'newusers
for a Very Long Time.)

o Right-click on an empty part of desktop.
o Select "Properties".
o Select the "Screen Saver" tab.
o Change the number in "Wait".

(I _think_, if you set it to 0, the 'saver doesn't cut in, but I might
be wrong about that.)

Hope that works for you.

Find out what works. Then do it. That's my system. I'm always surprised it
isn't more popular. - Scott Adams, 2015
