How to Configure a Clock for a Specific Timezone
Sometimes it may be necessary to configure a clock for a particular time zone, such as EST
(USA Eastern Standard Time), or PDT
(USA Pacific Daylight Time), etc.
To do that, configure the clock for any major location within time zone. For example:
- EDT - New York, NY
- CDT - Houston, TX
- MDT - Denver, CO
- PDT - San Francisco, CA
- Open Preferences.
- In the navigation tree on the left in Preferences, click on the clock label you want to configure.
Click on the Change button to change clock location
- After you click on the Change... button, the World Map should open. Find and select your city and then click Apply on the bottom.
Select a new location on the World Map and click Apply
- Optionally, edit clock label. Here, the location for the clock is New York, NY, United States but the label was edited to read EDT.
Modify the clock label
- Finally, click OK or Apply in Preferences.
