How to set Windows 10 to Auto Change Time Zones Based on Location

If you thought Windows 10 was automatically switching the time zone while you are traveling, it may just be wrong. Yes, Windows 10 does set the system time automatically (it’s enabled by default). This feature was always enabled in the OS. However, the feature to set time zones automatically based on your location was added later through an update.

So, how do you ensure that the time zone is automatically updated based on your location? Well, it’s a simple tweak in the Windows 10 Settings. Let’s see how.

How to Set Windows 10 to Automatically Change Time Zones Based on Location


Step 1: Click on the Windows icon on your desktop and click on Settings located above the Power button in the menu.


Go To Start, Click On Settings


Step 2: In the Settings window, click on Time and Language.

In The Settings Window, Click On Time And Language


Step 3: In the next window, under Time and Language on the left side of the pane, click on Date and Time. Now, on the right side of the pane, turn the slider on under Set time zone automatically.

That’s about it. You are done with the step and the automatic time zone feature is enabled now. So, now when you travel, your Windows 10 time zone will automatically switch based on your location.
