Windows 8/Windows 8 Server Edition


What command is used to change the time in the internal server clock in win 8 server edition?

Hi Dan!

You can change the time in Server 2012 (the server version that correlates to Windows 8) in two ways:

- Clicking on the clock and changing it in date/time settings (you can also change the server to which it synchs here).
- Command line:  simply type in the word "time" to receive a prompt to change the time, or "date" to change the date.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or clarifications.

Good luck!

I can answer nearly all questions about Windows 8 - installation, upgrade, virtualization (Hyper-V, etc.), configuration, how to get the most out of it, how to buy it, etc. I won't pretend to know it all - nobody can - if I don't know, I will try and find the answer. If I can't find it, I'll tell you.


I worked as an analyst in Dell server support for 2 years, and have since worked with many Dell PowerEdge servers. I am currently employed as IT Manager. I have been using Windows 8 since the early Developer Preview days and use it on all of my primary PC's for a number of activities.

I have a BS in Computer Science and have earned the following certifications: CompTIA Security+, A+, Project+; CIW Web Design, Database Specialist; Microsoft Windows 7; Dell DCSE Server. I am also an expert in Windows 7, Servers, and Hard Drives (I don't normally do XP - not because I don't know it inside and out, but because I have "retired" personal support for XP, and I want to see it die :)).
