Setting your system clock and time zone

Important

If your computerís internal clock is set incorrectly, or if you have not set the correct time zone settings for your locality, the Wclock times will be wrong.

Note: Exit the Wclock program and start it again after making changes.

The procedure is different for Windows 7/Vista and XP and earlier.

Windows 7 and Vista

  1. To set the time zone in Windows 7 and Vista, left-click on the clock in the icon tray at the bottom right of your computer screen.

  2. This should show the clock, date and calendar. Click on Change date and time settings... to get the Date and Time menu. (Alternatively, use Start > Control Panel > Date and Time.)

  3. Click on Change time zone and select your time zone.

  4. When you have the correct time zone, check that the time displayed in the Date & Time tab is correct. If not, change it and click Apply.
  5. When complete, click on OK.
  6. You must exit the Wclock program and start it again for your changes to take effect.

XP and earlier

  1. To set the time zone in Windows XP and earlier, double-click on the clock in the icon tray at the bottom right corner of your computer screen (you will need Administrator privileges to do this).

    This should display the Date/Time Properties screen. (Alternatively, use Start > Settings > Control Panel > Date/Time.)

  2. Select the Time Zone tab and select the time zone that is correct for you. It is recommended that you also check the Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes box. Click on Apply.

  3. When you have the correct time zone, check that the time displayed in the Date & Time tab is correct. If not, change it and click Apply.
  4. When complete, click on OK.
  5. You must exit the Wclock program and start it again for your changes to take effect.
