Where to set the Fade Control of Locked Layers

Can you advise where is the setting to change the Fade Control when you lock a layer?

(It is not the same as the Fade Control of the External References in the Display tag of the Options dialog.  I know that one and I am awere of this one.)

The one that I want to know is of the locked layers.  When I lock a layer, the objects in the layer fade.

Thanks in advance.

It is on the Ribbon:smileysurprised:. I use classic so I never looked for it there.

Thanks.

Is this setting not available also somewhere easy to find or to set location like in the Options dialog or in the Menu bar or in the Ribbon? 

We use AutoCAD Lite 2013.

If it is, I haven't found it. It's one of those commands that I only use when I update from one year to the next so I have it written down on my cheat sheet:smileywink:
