The time zone is a geographical zone throughout which the same standard time is used. For example, CET is the Central European Time zone for many countries in the central Europe (for example, France and Germany) where the time is always UTC+1:00. There are twenty four different time zones in the world. To keep your PC on the correct time it must be configured to have the correct time zone. Fortunately, changing the time zone in Windows 8 is very easy. Here is how you can change the time zone for your Windows 8 PC:
- Switch to Windows desktop, by pressing the hotkey Win + D.
- Right-click on the system clock shown in the bottom-right corner of the Windows desktop. Select Adjust Date/Time from the right-click context menu as shown,
- In the Date and Time window that opens, select the Date and Time tab by clicking on it. Then click on the button labeled Change time zone… as shown,
- In the Time Zone Settings window, select a time zone from the drop down list. If your selected time zone supports daylight savings time, then you can select to use it by checking the checkbox Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Savings Time. Finally click on the button labeled OK to save the new time zone settings.
- That’s it. You have successfully changed the time zone for your Windows 8 PC. Now Windows would use this newly selected time zone for maintaining the time in your PC.
