System hacks: Solve the Windows 10 clock auto-sync problem

As the default clock of Windows 10 automatically synchronized interval of 604,800 seconds (7 days), so that, during this period, if the system clock is set out of time, it will cause some software with time requirements of the time record is wrong. In addition, although we can manually synchronize the clock in the system “Settings”, but sometimes we may encounter the problem of performing clock synchronization failure. How to solve these problems?

1. Set the clock to be synchronized automatically when you start Windows

We can write a small script and add it to the system startup directory and scheduled tasks to make Windows synchronize the clock automatically when it starts.

First, write a simple script file TongBu.CMD in Notepad as shown in the figure (Figure 1), (script download link: Extraction code: mmfj).


Then, open the “Run” box and execute the “shell:startup” command to open the “Startup” folder of the system, and save the above script file to that directory Save the above script file to that directory.

Finally, start the Task Scheduler, click “Create Basic Task”, select the trigger as “On Computer Startup”, select the action as “Start Program”, and specify the script CMD and confirm it (Figure 2). 2.


Replace the tedious registry settings with third-party software

Previously, this publication has also introduced the registry to add the clock synchronization method, because the operation of the registry is more complex and risky, so we can also use some small software to complete the clock synchronization settings.

We can use Dimension 4 software to synchronize the clock. This software is free for individuals and provides a huge list of time servers. By selecting the “Load Dimension 4 at startup” option in the software, clock synchronization can be run automatically at system startup (Figure 3).


In addition, we can also use freeware such as Time-Sync and Neutron to automatically synchronize the time when Windows starts (Figure 4). 3.


3. Windows clock automatically synchronize the failure of the solution

If you keep displaying the message “Time synchronization failed” under “Sync clock” in Windows 10 “Settings” and cannot synchronize the clock, you can check the Windows Time service.


Launch Windows 10 “Services” window, find Windows Time service and set it to “Manual” or “Automatic”. If you cannot choose manual or automatic, change the login identity to “Local System Account” and then start the Windows Time service again (Figure 5). This will enable the clock synchronization function.
