By default, the time zone in Windows 7 is set to -8:00 Pacific Time (US & Canada). There are multiple ways to change the time zone. This post shows you two ways to change the time zone in Windows 7.
- Right click on the clock, at the right bottom of your screen, and click on Adjust Date/Time.
- Click on the Change time zone button
- Select the correct time zone and click OK. If you are in a region with DST, make sure you have checked the “Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time” checkbox.
- Click the Windows Orb and type “cmd” in de Search box. Press Enter.
- Type TZUTIL /L and press Enter. TZUTIL is a tool in Windows 7 which lets you set the time zone from the command line.
- From the output of the command TZUTIL /L (which is quite a long list 🙂 ), record the time zone you want to change to.
- Type TZUTIL /S “time zone“ . So, in case you want to change the time zone to (UTC+01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna, you should type: TZUTIL /S “W. Europe Standard Time”.
