How to fix different times in Dual boot mode ( Windows and Linux)

Your PC stores the time in a hardware clock on its motherboard. The clock keeps track of time, even when the computer is off. By default, Windows assumes the time is stored in local time, while Linux assumes the time is stored in UTC time and applies an offset. This leads to one of your operating systems showing the wrong time in a dual boot situation.

To fix this, you have two options: Disable RTC in Linux, or make Windows use UTC time. Don’t follow both steps of instructions or they still won’t be speaking the same language! We recommend you make Linux use local time, if possible.

1. Disable RTC on Linux

“`timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 –adjust-system-clock“`

                                        OR

2. Use UTC in windows
