RDS and screen and session timeouts

We have a new RDS environment hosted on server 2016.  My users are kicked out after a few mins of inactivity and I wanted to change that.  Can someone tell me where I can edit timeout settings for connected terminal server sessions please?  This is on server 2016.

Hello ThereSystem AdministratorCommented:
There is a change since WS2016 has been released.

In Windows Server 2012 R2 and earlier versions, when a user logs on to a terminal server, the RCM contacts the domain controller (DC) to query the configurations that are specific to Remote Desktop on the user object in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). This information is displayed in the Remote Desktop Services Profile tab of a users object properties in the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in.

Starting in Windows Server 2016, RCM no longer queries the users object in AD DS. If you require RCM to query AD DS because you are using the Remote Desktop Services attributes, you must manually enable RCM.
