    When will Windows get the time from the internet


    Windows reads the time from the system clock which might be wrong. Windows also updates the system time from the internet when I toggle the "automatic" option to OFF then to ON.

    Otherwise, it might eventually get the time from the internet but it would not be soon enough.

    Is there a way to get this to happen shortly after a reboot.

    (Aside: The reason the system time is wrong is not because the RTC battery is dead but because Ubuntu and Windows seem to write to the system clock differently. This is not a problem for Ubuntu because Ubuntu will display the wrong time (interpret what Windows wrote in an Ubuntu-manner) but then consults the internet shortly after the user login. The displayed time is wrong only between boot up and login. Windows will read the Ubuntu-written time and do nothing about it for an unknown time even if the internet is available.)

    :)

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    When will Windows get the time from the internet wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

    When will Windows get the time from the internet

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond When will Windows get the time from the internet :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
