I looked at the time and realized my computer was still on central time when it should have been on eastern time. So I went into the time change and checked to see what the hell was wrong. On the Internet tab it says "this computer is set to automatically synchronize with 'time.windows.com.' Under the Date and Time tab it is set Central Time. When I select the button for "Change Time Zone" I get all sorts of Aman and all sorts of places in Russia and the only other place is Central Time. Brazil is not even in the list. So how do I reload the list with Pacific, Mountain, Eastern time zones? How do I tell this computer that I am UTC-5 hours?

 

Thanks.

Ok. Being a native of Texas does not mean I am unaware of where the time zones are. I also realize that when I am in Virginia I am no longer in Texas. Last time I looked Virginia is in the Eastern Time Zone.

Simple to find your time zone.
 
Scroll through the list.
 
Look for Eastern Time (US & Canada) and select it. Does not get any simpler than that.
 
If you are saying you have scrolled through the list and don't see it HOW are accessing it to change the time zone?

Thanks BC ADvisor. I know how to set the date and time. I also know how to change time zones. As I said in my initial post, when I select the drop down of time zones there is Central Time Zone, Aman, and a lot of places in Russia. The list does not scroll up or down. There are 15 or 20 places listed and that is all. The Central Time Zone is the only US & Canada Zone there is.
