Windows 8 still can't set your timezone for you
Written on 27 Mar 2013 by Kester Dobson
After setting up a handful of Windows 8 laptops it dawned on me that the much debated operating system still refuses to set your timezone based on your region selection.
You'd think by now that when you tell Windows you are in the UK and would like a UK keyboard layout, it might be able to then set the timezone to London/GMT/BST. Nope. Still defaults to the US West Coast.
