If your computer is connected to the internet, Windows regularly and automatically updates the system clock. While this function is rather practical, it can still be improved.
Firstly, to access the Windows clock settings you will need to right click on the current time displayed at the bottom right hand corner of the desktop/ Select “Adjust Date/Time” from the menu that appears and then chose the “Internet Time” tab. From here, it is possible to see which server Windows uses by default called “time.windows.com”. You should know that if a large number of people are using the service at once, then the synchronization can appear to be slow.
Consequently, you can opt to use another server to speed this up. A list of servers exists and is available at this site and chose the one that is closest to you. In our example, we will use that at CIRIL.
Once the server has been changed, click on the “Update” button to synchronize your clock. This synchronization is done regularly, and is usually set to once a week. It is also possible to make this happen more often.
