  1. Windows 10 Time Zone is controlled by Outlook Time Zone setting


    This is a problem and solution. I noticed my Windows 10 Time Zone was incorrect and any attempt to set the time zone manually through windows settings or in Registry would not hold. It kept reverting back to Eastern when I wanted Mountain. I decided to look at what the Time Zone setting was in Outlook, and discovered that when I changed it in the Outlook settings it finally fixed the issue. Seems like the Tail wagging the Dog. It was the Outlook Time Zone that was controlling Windows, even though they are supposed to be the same. Hope this may help others.

    :)

    Fluctuating Time Zone Setting

    My time zone setting is fluctuating regularly. It had been set to my local time zone, but has fluctated to a range of adjacent time zones over the last two weeks

    These have all been verified by checking Outlook Calendar entries

    The original time zone was Brisbane

    it then changed to Sydney, Melbourne

    about a week later it changed to Vladivostok

    and today it changed to Darwin

    I have not made any changes to settings in this time (I picked up the issue from Outlook Calendar entries)

    I have changed the setting to Brisbane and turned off set time automatically

    Appreciate any suggestions

    Hi,

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • Since when are you facing this issue?

    Time Zone will not change automatically while you travel. If you want to change the Time Zone for your computer, you will have to change manually.

    Only the live tiles like Weather, News, and Sports have the ability to change with the location.

    • Go to control panel.
    • Click on "Clock, Language, and Region
    • Under "Date and Time", click on "Change the Time Zone"
    • Under "Time Zone" click on "Change time zone
    • Under "Time Zone, click the current time zone, and select your actual time zone
      • Click OK and you are done.

    Windows 10 Time Zone is controlled by Outlook Time Zone setting

    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?
