How to get clock to update to internet time

  Desert Andy 09:45 AM 09 Apr 13


In previous versions of windows I could see how to select an option for the clock to update automatically with the internet, but how do I do it in windows 8. My clock is showing an incorrect time and did not change automatically with British Summer Time.

Any help much appreciated.

Go to desktop and right click the time in the notification area and select 'Adjust Date and Time'. In the pane that opens, under the 'Date and Time' tab set your time and time zone ((UTC) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London), click apply. OK. Re-open and select the 'Internet Time' tab. I have mine set to synchronise with ''.

Thank you, found the automatic daylight savings tab, however, I do not have an internet time tab.
