Hi everybody, I’ve been using a dual boot Win10-Ubuntu desktop, and after messing up and breaking both OS’s, I’ve cleared every partition and performed a clean Win10 installation.
My clock is never accurate now, and I recall having to change something in Ubuntu for the time to display accurately in both OSs, but without it I’m not sure how to ‘revert the setting’. Any suggestions of what to change in Win10 (standalone) to fix this? Thanks!
Hi @wertigon , I think you’re onto something. While in my ‘adjust time and date’ settings everything seems right, in the registry it’s using Mountain Time instead of Central. I don’t know how to change the registry to do this though, I found examples on Google for East and West coast only. Would you know the adequate nomenclature by chance?
I just created a registry entry per some StackExchange post, but I’m not sure I did it right, because I’m still an hour off. The TimeZoneKeyName is still showing ‘Mountain Time’ even though I created a new RealTimeIsUniversal = reg 00000001 to set it to UTC.
“By default, a user doesn’t need the administrator permissions to change the time zone (unlike changing date/time). This behavior can be changed using the Local Security Settings console ( secpol.msc ). Go to Security Settings → Local Policy → User Rights Assignment . The policy is called Change the time zone . As you can see, the time zone can be changed by the system, administrators, and all users. To prevent users from changing the time zone, remove the Users group from the list of accounts in this policy.”
Thanks @Curglaff , I did have Pop!_OS installed and this may be the root issue, but my whole machine collapsed and I had to wipe all HDs and partitions … now I only have Win10 so can’t really take that route.
