Windows 7: Time Sync Thru Task Scheduler

26 Oct 2016   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1
Time Sync Thru Task Scheduler

I've been trying to sync my time on a certain schedule for a long time now. I don't know why it took me so long, but I just learned how to change the time sync in task scheduler. In doing more research--just to make sure that I understood--I became more confused. According to this site, I'm supposed to create another task to "Actually Synchronize Time." When I look at my settings, they are exactly the same as the new task that they want me to create, except for the w32tm.exe /resync action. Can't I just add this action to the schedule that is there by default? What exactly does this action do?
