Do you commonly move between time zones but hate that your Windows 10 computer doesn’t update your time to adjust for these time differences? Well, with a flick of a few switches, you can have your computer adjust for these differences, much like any cell phone.
- Ensure that your computer is updated. You’ll need the updates through at least November 2015. If it tells you that you are up-to-date, you’re all set to go.
- If your computer has been manufactured and installed all updates prior to November 2016, chances are your computer should already be up to date.
- Open your Start menu and click the Settings option. The option can’t be found if you try and find it through the classic Control Panel settings (picky, picky Microsoft).
- Select the “Time & language” button. This menu contains almost all time settings and language options.
- Ensure the “Set time automatically” switch is turned on.
- Slide the switch next to Set time zone automatically until the switch turns blue (much like the switch next to “Set time automatically”). With this setting on, the settings for your manual operation of time zones will become disabled so you can’t change them by yourself – your computer will change them for you from now on.
- Close all the dialog boxes. This should ensure your settings are saved.
- Restart your computer. It’s always great to start fresh every time you move from time zone to time zone; however, the changes should have taken effect when you slid the “Set time zone automatically” and/or have moved into another time zone.
- Test it when you move into another time zone. It should update your time within a couple of moments after you start your computer.
