Daylight Saving Time . . . did your clock change?

This past weekend everyone in the area was moving their clocks forward one hour for Daylight Saving Time.

While we have to do this with some electrical or battery operated clocks, our phones and computers and other smart devices take care of this automatically! It’s a nice feature to just have done instead of having to manually change the time yourself.
Sometimes, if certain settings aren’t correct, your computer may not adjust automatically. If your computer didn’t change the time automatically, or if your time isn’t correct, here’s how you can change it yourself on Windows 10.

In the lower right hand corner of your screen on the taskbar is the time and date. If your time is incorrect you need to Right Click on the time and date and select Adjust Date/Time. From the page that comes up you can change different settings such as having your time set automatically or your time zone, etc. If your time is wrong due to Daylight Saving Time make sure the little switch for Adjust for Daylight Saving Time Automatically is set to ON. This should update your time to be correct.

If this doesn’t work, it may need to be done manually. To do this make sure the switch for Set Time Automatically is set to OFF. Once off, we can click on the Change button underneath Change Date and Time. A little window pops up and we can change the date and time to whatever the correct information is and then hit Change when done applying the correct settings.

If you had to change it manually make sure you keep the Set Time Automatically option shut OFF, turning it back on will change it back. If you have any questions about changing the time, or any other settings from this page give us a call and we can help you out.
