Wrong Time on 3 of 3 Win 10 computers

    Wrong Time on 3 of 3 Win 10 computers


    I'm running Win 10 on four computers. (The fourth is off and has been for about 5 days.) Of the three I have up and running at the moment, ALL of them have the wrong time.

    1. I do not have location enabled, but I do have the correct time zone and the daylight savings toggled to "on".

    2. If you search for "time" when you open the Win 10 settings...you get an error. Joy.

    3. Opening the settings date/time menu does NOT let you access a "sync to internet time".

    4. Opening the Control Panel gives you time option, like "sync to internet time" which are unavailable on the time/date settings menu.

    5. Syncing (manually forcing it), corrected the issue on all 3.

    C'mon: If you're going to have Time/Date settings page, at least have it link to the control panel options, or, failing that, all the word "time" to get you to the settings and control panel menus.

    Just another UI rant...and a failure of the OS to properly keep time.


    Edited to show that I found the links to the control panel internet time once I scrolled all the way down on the settings window. D'Oh. (Hey, the time still was wrong...)

    Hi, in general, this is not an issue, so it should be something local to you in some manner.

    a. Are scheduled tasks working in general (time update is on a schedule)?
    b. What state is your Windows Time service in - how is it configured?
    c. Have you applied any group policy options that might have an adverse effect?

    Please check these settings esp. set time zone automatically.

    There was a glitch on the MS time servers on Monday. See Windows Time Service is sending out wrong times and thats a big problem for details and explanation. It's fixed now, but you can switch to a different time server in the Internet Time Settings window:
