In the age of computers and mobile phones, we look at wristwatches less and less. We have replaced them with electronic ones in our technology. What if the technique fails and shows the wrong time? To do this, you need to synchronize the time with the server, and then you will know exactly what time it is.
- - computer with internet access
- - browser
Synchronize the internal time server with the external one. Click the "Start" button, select "Programs" then - "Standard" - "Command Prompt". Enter the command w32tm / config / syncfromflags: manual / manualpeerlist: list, instead of a list, enter a comma-separated list of time source names or addresses and press enter. For example, you can enter the address of the synchronization server ntp.mobatime.ru. Next enter w32tm / config / update and press Enter. This command will synchronize the computer time with the selected time server.
To change how often the time is updated (the default is seven days), do the following. Open the registry, to do this, click the "Start" button, select the "Run" command and write regedit, in the window that opens, find the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeTimeProvidersNtpClient branch, there select the SpecialPollInterval parameter, its value is set at 604800 seconds: this parameter is measured in 604800 seconds, this parameter is measured in 3648 seconds = 168hours: for 24h = 7days. Correct this value to what you need, for example, change the figure to 600, and then the time will be updated every ten minutes.
Follow the steps below to set up time update. Create a text file using notepad and write the "net time" command there. Select the "Save As" command, select a location to save, enter any file name and extension required BAT. Next, open the task scheduler (Start-Programs-Accessories) and add this file, the frequency of execution depends on you, you can update the time at least every minute.
Double click on the clock in the tray, select "Internet Time" in the window that opens, enter the address of the time server, for example. time.windows.com and click the Update Now button.
