You can open the Date/Time Properties dialog box by clicking Start, pointing to Settings, clicking Control Panel, and then double-clicking Date/Time.

What is your Operating System? If in XP right click clock ( bottom right) then go to Adjust date and time,internet time and update from internet.

DOUBLE CLICK the time, when the window opens, place the cursor on the minutes then use the up&down arrow to set the right time,(even though they appear greyed out they do work)then click apply and close, your time will then be set to your liking. hope this helps

Wish I'd thought of this! :-)

Much easier and far more simple is to just double click on the time being shown....:-)

This applies to all icons in the System Tray.

You have to highlight which part of the time - hours, minutes or seconds - you wish to alter.

another way is to highlight the numbers to change and then just type in the new numbers on your keyboard, just tried it and it works.
hope you got the answer you needed abacab.
