Disable Screen Timeout Android 10

Since upgrading to Android 10, my Keep Screen On app no longer works... Nor do any similar apps I've tried. This is extremely frustrating when on a conference call (using ear buds). I work from home a couple of days per week (every day now due to COVID-19). I want my screen to stay on (NOT DIMMED) during calls so I can quickly toggle mute on/off. For now, I've enabled developer options so that it doesn't completely timeout... but that still lets it dim and, for it to work, I have to leave it charging.

 

Please let me know how I can COMPLETELY disable the timeout. 

 

BTW, please refrain from any lectures on why this is a bad idea. You will not be held responsible for damage to my screen caused by it staying on. I know the risks and fully accept them. 🙂 

 

Thank you to anyone who can help me with this!

Thank you useruSMKBrCbcZ' daughter!! I think this will work if I can just find a way to turn off the lock screen that also seems to time my phone out when studying... it will be wonderful. A wonderful find! It is ridiculous to even have to do this. This is my first Samsung and I will tell you... because of this and tgings LIKE this it will certainly be my very LAST. I want to go back to my ZTE where as an ADULT who likes to read and study for MORE than 10 mins at a time... I SHOULD be able to do just THAT WITHOUT checking in with my device... getting almost permission to continue. WHO do they think they ARE??? SMH...
