  1. Windows time zone wrong/not saving when settings are changed.


    Hello all,I have spent the last 7 hours of my day researching this problem and trying to fix it, but quite literally every solution I have seen did not work. It is really irritating to have the time constantly set/reset to PST with no way to change it to how it should be CST, no matter what I try. I am on Windows 10 Home.Literally any help is appreciated, even if it doesn't work,Ryan

    :)

  2. Shows the wrong time

    Hi Jonas,

    If you live in a region that does not observe daylight saving time (DST), but the Windows setting for that time zone
    does adjust for daylight saving time, we recommend that you do not clear the
    Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time check box in the
    Time Zone Settings dialog box. Instead, we suggest that you select a time zone that does not observe daylight saving time and that has the same Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) offset as the current time zone.

    For example, assume that your current time zone is (UTC-06:00) Central Time (US and Canada). There are two time zones that do not observe daylight saving time and that have the same UTC offset (-06:00):

    • (UTC-06:00) Central America
    • (UTC-06:00) Saskatchewan

    To change your time zone setting, follow these steps:

    • In Control Panel, click Clock, Language, and Region.
    • Click Change the time zone.
    • In the Time Zone area of the Date and Time
      dialog box, click Change time zone.
    • In the Time zone list, select a time zone that does not observe daylight saving time and has the same UTC offset as your current time zone.
    • Click OK.
    • Click Apply, and then click OK.

    Let us know how it goes.

    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?

    Windows time zone wrong/not saving when settings are changed.

    Time Zones do not change

    Hi Andre,

    Thanks for taking the time to help. I appreciate it.

    I opened the account on my computer which has Administrator Privileges and ran regedit.

    In the first string you suggested, it was already set to NTP.

    In the second string, I changed the value to 3, as instructed.

    Regrettably, after the restart - the trouble is still present. The Time Zone is still stuck on the time zone of the place I started my trip from.

    I opened Settings>Time and confirmed that the toggle is set to Automatically Detect/Change the Time Zone, but it clearly isn't working. Additionally, the place where it displays the Time Zone (which if you click on usually drops down a list where you can
    select a new TZ) is grayed out and not longer drops down a list if you click upon it.

    Also grayed out is the toggle allowing you to choose to ignore Daylight Savings.

    Hmmm. Puzzling.
