Description

The Set-TimeZone cmdlet sets the system time zone to a specified time zone.

Examples

Example 1: Set the time zone by Id

This example sets the time zone on the local computer to Russian Standard Time.

Set-TimeZone -Id "Russian Standard Time" -PassThru

Id                         : Russian Standard Time
DisplayName                : (UTC+03:00) Moscow, St. Petersburg
StandardName               : Russia TZ 2 Standard Time
DaylightName               : Russia TZ 2 Daylight Time
BaseUtcOffset              : 03:00:00
SupportsDaylightSavingTime : True

Example 2: Set the time zone by name

This example sets the time zone on the local computer to Russian Standard Time.

Set-TimeZone -Name "Russia TZ 2 Standard Time"

As we saw in the previous example, the Id and the Name of the Time Zone do not always match. The Name parameter must match the StandardName or DaylightName properties of the TimeZoneInfo object.
