I have read the article listed here:

[How to set connection timeout value for pgAdmin?][1]

many times, but I still have no idea where one sets the config parameter for connection_timeout. I am connecting from a local host to a local host, so there should be no real problems with keep alives.

I am using PgAdmin 4, PostGreSQL 9.6 on windows 10.

I would like to know the path to:

 - Is this something that has to be set in the server, (e.g. postgresql.conf) and what is the value to set? 
 - Or is this something in the client (and where is the client config and what has to be set?) 
 - Or is this a bug in PGADMIN
 - Or something else

I see others are also confused:
