    How to Change the Time in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Your PC's clock is used to record the time whenever you create or modify files on your PC. You can change the clock's time and time zone.

    Time is a measure in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future, and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them.

    This tutorial will show you different ways on how to change the time on the system clock for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to change the time.

    Don't forget to include a bit about the atomic clock because it's not obvious and people might want to change the time server to a more local one.

    Hello RiP2, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Yes, that method no longer works, and is why we retired (removed) our tutorial for it. If you like, you can use the tutorial below to remove the Calendar agenda from the current clock to help clean it up more.
