A time zone is a region which observes uniform standard time for legal, commercial and social purposes. Usually each country will have one timezone which is followed across all territories.

However, for large countries like USA, Russia etc. its difficult to have same timezone across all regions. Hence they divide the country into multiple time zones.

The time which is displayed on your system depends on the timezone you have selected. You can change the timezone to change your system time to reflect the current time in that timezone. Here’s how:

  1. I think there might be a bug with timezones. I have to set my timezone here in Norway to 0, not +1 as it should have been. Otherwise the time appear to be one hour ahead of the actual time. Then the clock displays right, but in all apps that relate to what time it is, they all present ‘now’ as ‘1 hour ago’.

    Anyone else experiencing this and/or know what to do about it?
