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.

Your PC's system clock is used to record the time whenever you create or modify files on your PC.

This tutorial will show you different ways on how to manually change the time on the system clock for all users in Windows 11.


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