    That looks much the same as Vista.

    Timezone management has been on of the big failings in Windows (in my view anyway). I was hoping Windows 7 would do something about it. Evidently not.

    The least would be a built-in tool to edit/create timezones and the ability to schedule timezone changes. For example, we had a one-off special timezone in 2006: it would have been good to be able schedule the timezone change and the return to our normal timezone in 2007 all at once (beforehand).

    An alternative method, and one that can be used from a script by system administrators, is the command-line utility tzutil.exe

    All is clear but Georgia, Republic of (Tbilisi) Time Zone is wrong. Georgia, Republic of, has no Summer or Winter time, we have one time full year. Right now Windows shows UTC Tbilisi +3 but really time is UTC +4. If I set the time manually after synchronization Windows sets time as it knows. Ican't resolve this problem.

    Hello Vakhocapr,

    I'm afraid that I do not see a "Daylight Time" settings to uncheck for that Time Zone. You might try one of the other UTC +4 Time Zones to see if that may work better for you.

    Adding more ime zones


    Hi Shawn,

    I am trying to get the Philippines into my additional clock which is 15hrs ahead of us. If we are at Thursday 9:00 pm, Philippines should be Friday 12:00 am.

    It seems that the time zones only allow up to UTC +13:00. Am I missing something here? Or is there a fix for this.

    Appreciate any help you can offer, or anyone.

    Thanks.

    Hello Pgybabz, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    According to the link below, you should be able to use the (UTC+08:00) Kuala Lumpur, Singapore time zone for it to be the same as yours.
