Welcome to our series of Microsoft Windows 10 tutorials that help you understand the features of this new operating system by Microsoft.
This tutorial will show you how to change the time synchronization interval in Windows 10.
You use date and time not just to keep track of the time, most applications in computer also make use of the system’s date and time in order to function properly.
By default Windows 10 will synchronize the time once a week (604800 seconds) to keep system time accurate.
Windows 10 does not have a feature to manually set the time interval for synchronization. For this we will have to make changes in system registry. Here’s how:
