5.4. Date & Time

Your Mac's conception of the current date and time is more important than you think—and much more customizable.

5.4.1. Setting the Time

Your Mac can set its own clock by checking in with an atomic clock on the Internet. However, if you're one of those people who sets your clocks five minutes fast in a thinly veiled attempt to prevent yourself from being continually late, you can set the time manually. (To learn if your Mac is already set up to synchronize its clock with the Internet, choose System Preferences → Date & Time → Date & Time tab. If Set Date & Time Automatically is on, your Mac will automatically update itself over the Internet.)
