    Increase the Time an Oulook 2013 Desktop Alert Stays on Under Win 10

    It is easy to increase the time an Outlook 2013 Desktop Alert stays on for a long time (hours or maybe all day) by using the registry hack below in Windows 7. This won't work under Windows 10. The longest time I can get by any method, Control Panel or hack is 5 minutes.

    Will someone please tell me how to make it at least a couple of hours or preferably all day?

    Thank you.

    Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<version>\Common\DesktopAlerts
    Value name: TimeOn
    Value type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 0 - 4294964295

    Hello JJG10,

    You might see if setting the time you wanted using OPTION THREE for how long to show notifications may be able to work for this as well.
