I am for the most part a Linux user and once a week Windows. Every timne I log into Windows 10 the time is out by six hours or so. I have to go to time settings and change "set time automatically to Off" then turn it back to on and the time is now right.Time.PNGImage Enlarger

Hi Allan,

Try this:
Toggle the switch labeled "Set time zone automatically" to the Off position. Then manually set the correct time zone in the drop-down box.

See if that helps,
Richard

Thanks Richard, but I've already tried that. This time abnormality happens on both my laptop and PC. I've really almost given up on Windows. The laptop I have on the Insider program on updates and it will no longer install them. Whenever I get the time maybe I'll do a complete fresh install. I went the Insider route to get rid of another problem which worked. Anyways I digress; thanks again.

Hi Allan,

Sorry that didn't do the trick for you.
Given Microsoft's recent shoddy update behavior, it's a miracle that anything works at all.

Maybe somebody else here will have some ideas,
Richard

Hi Allan
Are you saying you are dual booting Windows and Linux? If so then, Windows maintains the clock in local time while Linux uses real time clock (RTC) in universal time (UTC). It is by far easier to make Linux use local time than it is to change Windows. If you are interested I can give you a few commands to run in your terminal.

A lightbulb just went on; you may be onto something. OK but when I think of it; on installation time zone was set to PST., so isn't that setting it to local time? You have my attention though; why are both machines the wrong time in Windows. When I think of it, I never put Linux on my laptop for a year after I bought it and I don't recall having the time issue then.
Thanks dandl, lets have it.

I have had this issue with several dual boots with Windows and Linux. Make sure time is correct in Windows and restart and log into Linux.
This is what I do. Open a Linux Terminal and type sudo timedatectl if it has timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 then you are using RTC time. I then typed sudo timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 --adjust-system-clock. This should change the 1 to a 0. Mind you this was done using Linux Mint 18.3 but I do believe it would work with any Debian based distro.

The link their has some info also. What Linux Distro are you using? Can't really fault anyone for trying to get away from Windows 10.time-setting-1.PNGImage Enlarger

Thanks I'll get to work on that. I have Linux Mint Tara 19. My laptop cold boots in 12 seconds; my PC a cupla seconds longer. I really have little use for Windows. I do everything in Mint. The only thing on Windows is my Chessmaster game.
This is a neat captcha idea on this site.

I have Mint 18.3 on a small SanDisk SSD and Zorin on another SSD in two of my PC's. The only time I use Windows is for playing a game or using my printer. Boot time on both Linux Distros is really fast. Wish more users would give Linux a try. Got a few more little Linux tweaks if you are intrested. Daniel.

Sure on the tweaks Daniel. I enjoy messing around and some times messing things up, but that's where the fun lies. Well I'm not in the mood for any more Windows cr*P, so will tackle that later and the horizontal mode is beckoning. Thanks again for your help; tenforums couldn't help.

This has made my Linux Mint a whole lot user friendly.
