    Time Keeping


    How accurate is the time under Windows 10 ?

    In earlier versions of Windows I used a third party app to adjust the time
    to NIST.

    Is that still a requirement under Windows 10 ?

    Thanks,

    Richard S.

    As far back as XP (released in 2001) Windows has had built in support for setting the clock to Internet time. No need for third part utilities. Clock accuracy should be more than adequate for normal purposes.
