Windows 10: Wrong time zone detected

    Wrong time zone detected


    When I go up to my cabin, Windows always changes my time zone to Pacific. I'm in Mountain Time, and I actually go east to get to the cabin. I don't know if it's the IP address, or the WiFi network, or what, but it happens every time. If I go into Time settings and disable automatically detect timezone, I can set it back to mountain time. But if I re-enable auto-detect, it switches right back to Pacific.

    Is there any way I can teach Windows the correct time zone so that it auto-detects correctly?

    Hi there

    in the time on the taskbar -->date&time settings-->additional date,time -- then choose Internet time -- clock should then be set to a standard clock for your region when you logon to the Internet. The chances are you are selecting the wrong clock or your region is set incorrectly in the first place.

    Cheers
