Microsoft Windows doesn’t update the clock enough times in the day and when you have a motherboard with a dodgy clock it doesn’t help when the time drifts. Thankfully the time synchronization can be controlled using the Task Scheduler in Windows. This means there are no additional software needed. This will be walk through using Windows 8.1 but also works for Windows 10.
Go to the Task Scheduler. This can be done using the search using the work “schedule task” or from the control panel.
Next is Settings tab tick the Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed.
Press the OK button to save the changes.
It’s fairly easy to kick the time sync off more frequently and I wish it was set more frequently by default. It also helps with a dodgy internal clock on a computer so long as you have Internet.
