How to keep Raspbian screen active even when there's no user activity

Last Modified: 2020-02-10
Can anyone tell me how to configure my Raspberry Pi3 to not blank the screen after no activity please? ie I want the screen to remain active at all times even if there is no activity (it is for a network monitoring tool)

Version: Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (Stretch)

I'd prefer not to install a "no screensaver" app, I'd prefer to adjust the OS settings if possible please.
