How to get clock to update to internet time


Desert Andy

Likes # 0

Hi

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.

Andy

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 'time.windows.com'.

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

Left click the time on the Taskbar.Click on change date and time settings.Then click on internet time on the top right.

Is it an old computer and does it loose time daily if so it may need a new CMOS battery.
