Hi,

 

Right click on an empty area of the Desktop and select Personalize.  Click the Screen saver link in the bottom right.  In the following window you can adjust the time before the screensaver kicks in the  'Wait' dropdown menu.  If you don't want to have to sign-in after this, also remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'.  Click Apply, then Ok to save the setting change.

 

Regards,
