Adjusting the Date, Time, and Region Settings in the Control Panel
Windows 10 provides users with the ability to customize their system’s date, time, and region settings in the Control Panel. This allows users to set their local time zone, set up daylight savings options, and synchronize the system clock with an accurate internet source. In this article, we’ll look at how to adjust the date, time, and region settings in Windows 10 using the Control Panel.
Open the Control Panel
The first step is to open the Control Panel. To do this, press the Windows key + X to open the Quick Access menu and select Control Panel from the list of options.
Select Clock, Language, and Region
Under the Systems and Security section, locate and select Clock, Language, and Region.
At the top of the window, click on the link for Region.
