I'm running Windows 10 Pro on my PC and it has all the latest updates.

For some reason, the time did not adjust this morning.

As far as I can see, all my time settings are correct (see attached)


Any ideas?

Same thing happaned on my older Haswell rig. I simply went into the BIOS set the correct time and went from there and then Windows synced with it. My newer AMD rig didn't have that issue.

UPDATE:

I went to Date & Time Settings and clicked in the "Sync Now" under "Syncronise your clock" and the time reset correctly.

I noted that the last time it "Synced" was 2 days ago (before DST kicked in).

I'm assuming that this "Sync" should happen automatically and on a more regular basis, so as to pick up DST etc.

Does anybody know where this setting is controlled from?

Thanks joeten.

All the settings here are correct and it is set to sync. It states "this computer is set to automatically synchronise on a regular basis"

My issue is that it clearly did NOT sync, nor did I get any message that a sync had failed.

I'm trying to better understand where the frequency of sync is managed from.

Is it possible this is a windows update issue?

You could try a SFC scan and also Dism and see if that fixes any issue, scroll down here for how https://windowsreport.com/wrong-time...ows-clock-fix/ it may also be the Cmos battery needs replacing.

Time is set in the Bios, Windows will adjust for DST Time Zone changes. Change the time in the Bios. To test, in Windows, choose a different Time Zone. If that changes the time, then it was an anomaly.

Thanks spunk.funk

I had already clicked on "sync now" and the time is correct.

The issue is not replicable, so I'm still trying to understand why it did not change (and where the frequency of syncs is determined).

Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until October to check if the next time change happens.
