    PC won't let me change time zone


    I want to change the time zone on my PC because it is wrong, however, whenever I changed it in the settings app it would just revert back to Pacific Time US & Canada. Even when I go to Control Panel > Clock and Region > Date and Time and try to change it there it says Unable to Continue, You do not have permission to perform this task. Please contact your computer administrator for help. It says this even though I'm the only account on this PC and the only admin. I've looked at other things did "net user administrator /active:yes" and then "net user administrator <my password>" to create an Administrator account, however even on that account I can't change the time zone. It just gives me the same error message. I also disabled OneDrive and that still didn't fix it. Any other action that requires administrator access I can still do. It's just this one thing. Oh, and how do I remove the administrator account that was added from the command?

    :)

    Unable to change the time zone in Windows 10

    I'm running Windows 10 Pro. My time zone is Jerusalem, but I need to change it to Eastern to test a program I'm working on.

    The time zone won't change. I have tried:

    • From the clock/calendar, when I change it - it changes back.
    • From Control Panel - Date and Time, "Change time zone..." - when I click save I get the message "Error occurred - your changes could not be saved."
    • As the Built-in Administrator from the command line using tzutil - I get the message "Insufficient privileges to set the current time zone."

    The registry key TimeZoneInformation has Full Control for Administrators

    Administrators are listed in the Local Security Setting "Change the Time Zone"

    Any suggestions?
