Lesson 25. Controlling Hardware Settings > Altering the Date and Time

Altering the Date and Time

You use the Control Panel to set your computer's system date and time, which is used to time-stamp files as you create and modify them. In addition, many applications allow you to automatically insert the date and time on-screen or when you print, so you'll want to be sure to have the right time on your computer.

Bad Battery? If you set your time and date and then find that the date is wrong when you start your computer again, you probably have a bad battery. Check your computer's documentation for instructions on how to replace the battery.
