Setting date and time in windows 10 have been a challenging issue for so many people who are not conversant with the new Windows. This is because many people were accustomed or used to the former Windows 7 where it was easy to change the date and time. It is important to note that date and time are usually displayed on the right side of the taskbar. If your computer is showing incorrect time, the following two methods can be used to fix it. The first method is automatic while the second method is manual. The level of expertise or computer knowledge will inform on the suitable method a person will use to adjust time if the clock is not displaying correct time.
