My home Surface Mini running Windows 10 would default to Pacific time zone instead of Central. I would change the time zone, but when the system was rebooted it would default back to Pacific. One place where you change the time zone we would get an "Unable to continue" error. After trying a few things, I attempted using the command prompt to change the time zone & it worked. Here are the time zone commands you can use:

  • "tzutil /g" will show you the current time zone.
  • "tzutil /l" will give you a list of possible time zones.
  • "tzutil /s "name of time zone"" will allow you to set a time zone, (i.e. tzutil /s "Central Standard Time"}
