How can I shorten the time for an invitation to Remote Assistance on Windows 8?

When you issue an invitation asking for Remote Assistance in Windows 8, it stays valid for a long time (six hours). Is there a way to make the invitation valid for a shorter period of time? Thanks.

Hughye has some good info. You might also want to check the FAQ on Microsoft's site:


Pull up the control panel and select System and Security>Allow Remote Access>Advanced. Select the desired amount of time for the invitation to remain open in the invitations box and click "OK" 2x. It’s simple once you know where to change it.
