The Settings window will open. Click on 'Time & Language' in the list on the left, then select 'Date & Time'.
On the Date & Time settings screen, click the switch next to the 'Set Time Automatically' option to switch it to the 'Off' state.
Next, scroll down to find the 'Set the date and time manually' option and click 'Change'.
The 'Change Date and Time' window will appear. Here you use the drop-down menus to set the desired date and time, then click 'Change'.

Set date and time automatically in Windows 11
As mentioned, by default, Windows 11 automatically gets the time from the Internet. But if you've previously disabled the feature, it can be easily re-enabled by doing the following:
First, make sure that your Windows 11 PC is connected to the Internet. Then open the Settings app.
Click 'Time & Language' in the list on the left, then select 'Date & Time'.
On the Date & Time settings screen, click the switch next to the 'Set Time Automatically' option to switch it back to the 'On' state.
Now make sure your time zone is set to the right value using the 'Time Zone' drop-down menu.
Then scroll down to the 'Additional Settings' section and click 'Sync Now'. This will force your Windows 11 PC to update the date and time on its own to match the Windows time server.
The date and time on your system will now be updated automatically. It's all as simple as that!
