Fix wrong time in Windows 10

For dual boot systems with mixed Windows 10 and Linux systems the computer clock might display the wrong time.  This is a known problem. Linux systems set the motherboard clock to UTC time. Windows 10 uses local time for the clock on the motherboard. This will create big problems when you shift between systems.

Change the Windows registry to set the motherboard clock to UTC (Greenwich Mean Time). The time displayed and used in Windows will of course be correct.

  • Run: Regedit
  • Go to: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation
  • Set: RealTimeIsUniversal to 1  (REG_DWORD)
