Chapter 5. Personalizing Windows > Resetting the Time and Date

Resetting the Time and Date

The time and date for your system should be automatically set when you first turn on your computer. If you find that you need to change or reset the time or date settings, all you have to do is follow these steps:

1.
Double-click the time display in the Windows Tray (at the bottom right of your screen) to display the Date and Time Properties dialog box.

2.
Select the Date & Time tab; then select the correct month and year from the pull-down lists, click the correct day of the month on the calendar, and set the correct time on the clock.

3.
Select the Time Zone tab; then select the correct time zone from the pull-down list. (For most states, you should also select Automatically Adjust Clock for Daylight Saving Changes.)

4.
Select the Internet Time tab; then check the Automatically Synchronize with an Internet Time Server option. (This automatically synchronizes your PC's internal clock with an ultra-accurate time server on the Internet.)

5.
Click OK when done.
