To synchronize the contacts and messages with my Exchange Server, Windows 10 requires an increase of the work stations security, forcing a new Windows login after a specified inactivity period. Once the increased security is implemented users can only play with an inactivity period range of 1 to 5 minutes.

My settings for screen saver and lock screen are not set for one minute and this automatic one minute lock gets very frustrating. Please assist in a solution to stop my machine from automatically going into lock screen after one minute.
