TimeZonesView is a free portable program for Microsoft's Windows operating system by Nirsoft that lists information about all timezones.
The program is compatible with all versions of Windows from Windows XP to the latest Windows 10 version. It supports 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows, and can be run right after you have downloaded its package and extracted it to the local system.
Since it is a portable program, you may run it from any location including USB Flash drives.
TimeZonesView lists all time zones in its interface when you run the program. It highlights the time zone of the current device with a green background color for easier recognition.
Note: that the time zone information on the system you run the program on needs to be accurate for the time zone information to be displayed correctly.
The application displays the name, description, date/time, daylight saving start and end time, and the Registry name in its interface.
While the program has little practical value, it may be useful in certain situations. For instance, if you want to know what time it is in a different location for instance, or when the daylight saving time begins and ends in your location.
Also, it may be useful if you have a meeting, online or offline, and the date and time are provided for a different time zone.
TimeZonesView ships with a set of options that are included in pretty much any Nirsoft application. You can export some or all of the information to various output formats including XML, HTML or CSV. You may also use the built-in search to find a time zone or location quickly on top of that.
In case you are wondering where the information comes from: The program pulls the data from the following Windows Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones.
TimeZonesView is a lightweight program for Windows that displays information about time zones. It could use a converter to quickly find out when a particular event happens in your time zone if the information given used a different time zone.
