Copyright (c) 2017 Nir Sofer


TimeZonesView is a simple tool for Windows that displays all world time zones. For every time zone, the following information is displayed: name, description, current date/time in this time zone and date/time that daylight saving time begins and ends.

System Requirements

This utility works on any versions of Windows, starting from Windows XP and up to Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported. Be aware that in order to display accurate time information, the current time and time zone on your system must be correct (Including the settings of daylight saving time). Also, the time zone information is taken from the following Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones. So the information on this Registry key must be correct too.
