Often we are faced with the need to change the system time and date. For example, when switching to summer time or when traveling to a place
with a different time zone. In this article we will discuss some ways to change the system date and time.
Change the system date and time in the Windows operating system.
Change the date and time through the parameters of the date and time. Regardless of the version of Windows, you can change the date and time by
left-clicking on the clock in the lower right corner or open the Toolbar. In versions of earlier Windows 10, you must select "Change the date and time settings",
in Windows 10 to change the date and time you must open the "Date and Time Settings". This may require you to enter a password for the system administrator.
Next, change the time zone, date and time to the necessary.
Change the date and time through the command line To use the command line to change the date and time, open a command line with administrator privileges.
In Windows 7 and later, just type the command line or cmd in the search bar, right-click on the result and select run as administrator.
The command to change the time is HH: MM: SS (where HH is hours, MM is minutes, SS is seconds), enter it and press Enter on the keyboard.
The command to change the date DD / MM / YYYY (where DD is the day, MM is the month, YYYY is the year), enter it and press Enter on the keyboard.
Date and time settings change instantly, but remain until the first reboot. The next time you turn on the computer or after rebooting, the date and time
will return to the original value. This method is convenient if changing the system date and time is necessary for temporary configuration in order to bypass the license or use a VPN.
