To configure the system time zone, click the Time Zone tab. The time zone can be changed by either using the interactive map or by choosing the desired time zone from the list below the map. To use the map, click on the city that represents the desired time zone. A red X appears and the time zone selection changes in the list below the map. Click OK to apply the changes and exit the program.
