Hey, no problem, and thank you.
I would have liked maybe 3 seconds or something but oh well.

NOTE: The default time is 5 seconds. Entering anything lower will still have a 5 second wait though.

Option Two proved useful lately when someone wanted to know how to extend the time for keeping notifications onscreen much longer! All too often people were always looking to disable it rather then seeing any remain onscreen maybe all day long? while the user was away.

At first the advice was going to the Ease of Access settings in order to bring it up to the 5 minute setting there. I knew there had to be a DWord common denominator in order to change the data value and then came across this one! "oldie but goodie"!

Open Box - or STAY AWAY!
Greetings, I am looking @ some motherboards and other items on Newegg and they sometimes have items discounted since they are classed as "open box." Should I run away quickly from any open box items, or would it be okay to purchase an item like that? Thanks for your thoughts. :)
