In this article, we want to teach you How To Change the Time Zone on Windows Server 2019.
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.
As you know, changing the Time Zone is important for people who use a variety of Windows services and provide that service on a network or Internet level.
In this guide, you will learn to change Time Zone with PowerShell.
Change Time Zone on Windows Server 2019 with PowerShell
To change the Time Zone with PowerShell, you need to open a PowerShell with Administrator access.
To do this, from your start menu type PowerShell and right-click on it, and select Run as an Administrator.
After you open your PowerShell on your Windows Server, run the following command to see your current Time Zone:
In your output, you will see something similar to this:
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 Server:
In your output you will see:
Output Id : Dateline Standard Time DisplayName : (UTC-12:00) International Date Line West StandardName : Dateline Standard Time DaylightName : Dateline Daylight Time BaseUtcOffset : -12:00:00 SupportsDaylightSavingTime : False Id : UTC-11 DisplayName : (UTC-11:00) Coordinated Universal Time-11 StandardName : UTC-11 DaylightName : UTC-11 BaseUtcOffset : -11:00:00 SupportsDaylightSavingTime : False Id : Aleutian Standard Time DisplayName : (UTC-10:00) Aleutian Islands StandardName : Aleutian Standard Time DaylightName : Aleutian Daylight Time BaseUtcOffset : -10:00:00 SupportsDaylightSavingTime : True ...
After viewing the list of available time zones and selecting the desired time zone, with the Set-TimeZone command you can set your Windows server time zone.
Set-TimeZone -Name “Canada Central Standard Time”
At this point, you can use the following command again to see your current Time Zone:
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
Also, you can use different ways to change your Windows Time Zone like:
Change Time Zone from the CMD, from the control panel, and from the setting.
At this point, you have successfully changed your Windows Server 2019 Time Zone.
Hope you enjoy it.
