    Is there a way to get the date and window to stay opened like in Windows XP?

    or
    From the instructions in this message:
    have the image in step 9 stay without out having to go through steps 1-5.

    Thanks

    Hello spjr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If you like, you could add an additional clock to have this below show every time you hover over the time on the taskbar.

    Hope this helps, :)

    Is there a registry hack to get the clock to stay in a window when you click on the system tray time?
    Like the image in step 9.
    With the steps shown the Date and Time window (step 5) stays open along with the Date and Time Settings window (step 9).
    Thanks

    Thanks,
    I do not understand why MS changes this so much.
    They changed the clock on Windows 10.
    There is a registry hack to make the clock look like the Win 7 & 8.
    I liked the clock on Win 10 but it did not have the analog clock so I changed it to the old style.
    I thought there may be a hack for the clock to appear in a window.

    Thanks again.

    I just set both computers by Internet Time, and there's a minute difference. I've read that this can cause problems when sending files over my network. Does the exact time really matter?

    Hi, i am encountering error while synchronizing internet time with times windows com. Sometimes, access denied error, some times error occurred due to timeout etc.
    Brink, you could update on internet time. Moreover, whenever I click on update INternet time, it goes smooth and changes the time at the instant.But nowadays, it gives error. Why this behaviour

    Hello mate,

    This can happen sometimes when there's an interruption or time out while syncing with the selected time server.

    You could test using a different time server to see if one may work better when getting this error.

    Hi, bRINK, I have tried all but getting errors. Is that a windows bug due to some later updates.
    i have tried pool.ntp.org, time.google.com etc. I also added some in the registry. But error like peer is unreachable, timeout, Access denied etc are some of the errors .
    i tried all sorts of things including registering w32 time and dll etc. But update now does not work simply.
