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

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.

Thanks

You need to disable the screensaver for the desktop.
(while configuring the screen saver, also the blanking can be disabled).

Hi

Thanks for replying. How do I disable the screensaver? I don't have a screensaver app installed and can't see an option in any menu items.
