Unable to change computer time zone

Hi DysonR,

I’m Louie, a Microsoft Community member and a fellow Windows 10 user like you. Hope you’re doing well and safe there.

Please follow these steps to fix the issue:

1. Type in ‘cmd’ in search box. You’ll see Command Prompt listed. Right-click and select Run as Administrator.

2. Type ‘tzutil /l’ to see a list of all time zones. Once you find your time zone, copy the description that is on the second line.


(UTC-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

Central Standard Time <—- copy

3. Type ‘tzutil /s “(paste the time zone here)”


tzutil /s “Central Standard Time” (make sure to include the quotations) then press ENTER.

4. Exit the Command Prompt and verify that the Timezone is correct.
