How To Change the Time and Date in Windows 10

By | June 29, 2018

Windows 10 automatically sets the time and date according to your timezone and synchronisation with other servers.
The automatic time function is handy if you travel between different timezones or
have moments on your calender where you normally need to turn the clock 1 hour forwards or backwards for summer / winter time.
There is also the possibility to turn of the automatic time and set the time yourself.
This means the time and date will not automatically be set so if there is a fault you have to fix it.
