    Time to display a list of operating systems


    I tried several ways of making the time of my choosing time permanent, including the cmd bcdedit /timeout 120
    but along the way it reverts back to the default 10 seconds.

    I have several other internal drives that have partition images of my primary OS. I only connect them for restoring an updated image, or data backup, after which they are disconnected. Could that be a possible reason for my problem?

    I run it in an elevated command prompt. The value gets successfully changed to whatever I choose, 30, 60, 120, etc., up to 300.

    The problem is that it always eventually reverts back to "10", That's why I requested a "permanent" solution.

    Try changing the setting in System Config. On Win 11. though, should work the same. Note that under Start-up and Recovery still shows 10 seconds.

    msconfig is for debugging purpose if you have been setting it here OP it should still work but its possible that maybe there is discrepancy now happening between that and bcedit.

    What i mean is one is possible overriding the other somewhere, might have to make some reg edits or something.

    Hello @kitpzyxmsir,

    When I setup a system, I use Scripts, one of them being the Time to Display Operating Systems at Startup.

    I use bcdedit /timeout 0 [ Elevated CMD Prompt ], but 0 can be what you want it to be between 0-999.

    I hope this helps.

    As I mentioned in my OP, "I have several other internal drives that have partition images of my primary OS. I only connect them for restoring an updated image, or data backup, after which they are disconnected. Could that be a possible reason for my problem?"

    Three other internal drives to be exact.

    When I run bcedit, whatever amount of time I choose as part of the command, both areas, msconfig, and System Config, reflect the exact same time change.

    I know, I was just pointing out that when I use that command it stays as 0. The fact that yours changes, obviously means there must be something else set somewhere that is resetting it !
