    That maybe long for some of you.
    You may want to have that for less. But for me, 5 minutes is fine. Again, in the screen timeout the options are 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes and 10 minutes. 10 minutes is quite long time but 5 minutes is more than enough for me because I talk a lot and it's some of these how to videos I may actually talk excessively.

    So there we are, if you would like to change the other settings here, you can.
    We'll visit that in another videos. For now, this is how you change the time out on your lock screen. Thank you for watching VisiHow and have a great day!
