Setting Time and Date

The time and date that appears on the taskbar is not a simple feature and it serves multiple purposes. The Windows clock is used by the operating system to configure every Microsoft-made apps, including Outlook.

Therefore, people who are experiencing issues with Outlook should open the “Date and Time” settings by clicking on the Start menu and then on the Settings app (gear icon). Now, choose the “Time & Language” option and browser over to the “Date & Time” tab.

Set Time Automatically

All that’s to do is to make sure that the date and time settings are correct. If they are not, Outlook users can enable the “Set time automatically” option. After doing this, users need to do change the date by clicking on the dropdown menu and finding the correct month and year.

We should also mention that the time configuration can be manually changed by clicking the hour, minutes or seconds and sliding through the option until the correct time is selected.
