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.

You can choose to let Windows 11 set the time automatically, or you can set the time manually.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off set time automatically for all users in Windows 11.


You must be signed in as an administrator to turn on or off set time automatically.
