Question Desktop

How do I keep my desktop window onscreen permanently, it blacks out after about ten minutes.
I know I can press any key to bring it back, I've been to properties & looked at all options, but................?

That would be the screensaver, if you've been unactive for some time, it would show that
Anyways go to properties and then to screensaver and then select your screensaver as 'none' ...

I didn't explain myself properly, what I really want is to leave the email window live & onscreen so I can carry on reading or watching TV, I get a lot of emails from CF all day, I'm retired, not to well, sitting there most of the day & want to be alerted by a tone announcing new mail.
