If you travel a lot with a laptop you may find yourself working in many different time zones. The challenge is that your laptop will display the incorrect time. This can make it particularly challenging when scheduling or attending meetings.
Rather than manually updating your time as you step foot into each new geography, one solution is to configure your time settings to update based on your location. This process is quite simple.
Let’s get started!
Note: This solution requires Windows 10
Configure Automatic Time Zone
From your Windows 10 desktop, right click on the time in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
From the context menu select Adjust Date/Time.
From the Date & Time settings window flip the toggle under Set Time Zone Automatically to the On position.
Your time zone (and time) will update automatically based on your location in the world.
You will also notice that once you configured your PC to use an automatic time zone, all other manual zone settings, such as the drop-down box to set the time zone are now grayed out.
