How To Change Time Zone on Windows 10

In this tutorial, We try to show you to Change or Adjust Time Zone Settings on Windows 10 automatically and manually.

The term time zone can be used to describe several different things, but mostly it refers to the local time of a region or a country.

The local time within a time zone is defined by its offset (difference) from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the world’s time standard.

As you know, changing the Time Zone is essential for people who use a variety of Windows services and provide that service on a network or Internet level.

Steps To Change Time Zone on Windows 10

To complete this guide, log in to your Windows Client and follow the steps below.

Here we will show you to adjust the time zone automatically and manually on your Windows 10.

Adjust Time Zone automatically on Windows 10

Follow the steps below to allow Windows 10 to detect and set the correct time zone automatically.

At this point, you can use the settings or CMD, or PowerShell to change your time zone manually.

Change Time Zone From Settings

From the settings, you can easily follow the steps above and turn off the Set time zone automatically button. After that, use the “Time zone” drop-down menu and select the correct zone setting.

Note: If you live in a region that uses daylight saving, make sure to turn on the “Adjust for daylight saving time automatically” button.

Change the Time zone From PowerShell

From your start menu type PowerShell and right-click on it, and select Run as an Administrator.

Then, run the following command to see your current Time Zone:

Get-TimeZone
Example Output
Id                         : Pacific Standard Time
DisplayName                : (UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)
StandardName               : Pacific Standard Time
DaylightName               : Pacific Daylight Time
BaseUtcOffset              : -08:00:00
SupportsDaylightSavingTime : True

Now you can use the following command to list the available Time Zones on your Windows 10:

Get-TimeZone -ListAvailable

You will get a list of available time zones after running this command. After viewing the list of available time zones and selecting the desired time zone, with the Set-TimeZone command you can set your Windows 10 time zone.

For example:

Set-TimeZone -Name “Canada Central Standard Time”

At this point, you can use the following command again to see your current Time Zone:

Get-TimeZone

In your output you will see that your Time Zone has been changed:

Output
Id                         : Canada Central Standard Time
DisplayName                : (UTC-06:00) Saskatchewan
StandardName               : Canada Central Standard Time
DaylightName               : Canada Central Daylight Time
BaseUtcOffset              : -06:00:00
SupportsDaylightSavingTime : False

Change Time Zone From CMD

From your start menu type Command Prompt and right-click on it, and select Run as an Administrator.

Then, run the following command to see your current Time Zone:

tzutil /g
Example Output
Canada Central Standard Time

Now you can use the following command to list the available Time Zones on your Windows 10:

tzutil /l

You will get a list of available time zones after running this command. After viewing the list of available time zones and selecting the desired time zone, run the command below to set your desired time zone.

For example:

tzutil /s "Line Islands Standard Time"

At this point, you can use the following command again to see your current Time Zone:

tzutil /g

In your output you will see that your Time Zone has been changed:

Output
Line Islands Standard Time

That’s It, you are done.
