Consider the following scenario. You are in a time zone that does not observe Daylight Saving Time (DST). You switch Outlook from this DST time zone to a time zone that supports DST and the current date is within the observed DST. You see the times in the Calendar time zone bars are off by one hour. Additionally, the Date and Time Control Panel applet in Windows does not have the Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time checkbox enabled.
If you are unable to install Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 1, you can use the following workaround.
After swapping from a time zone that does not observe DST to one that does, ensure that the Windows setting Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time checkbox is enabled.
To change your time zone setting, follow these steps:
- Windows XP
- Double-click the clock in the Windows Notification section of the Taskbar.
- Select the Time Zone tab in the Date and Time Properties dialog box.
- Enable the Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes option and click OK.
- Windows Vista and Windows 7
- Click the clock in the Windows Notification section of the Taskbar.
- Click Change date and time settings
- In the Date and Time dialog box, click Change time zone.
- In the Time Zone Settings dialog box, enable the Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time option and click OK.
- Click OK again to closethe Date and Time dialog box.
