Change the time in Skype

Change the time in Skype

As you know, when you send and receive messages, make calls and perform other actions in Skype, they are recorded in a record with the time. A user can always open the chat window to see when a specific call or message was sent. But can I change the time in Skype? Let's get to the bottom of this question.

Change the time in the operating system

The easiest way to change the time in Skype is to change it in your computer's operating system. This is because Skype uses system time by default.

To change the time in this way, click on the clock in the lower right corner of your computer screen. Then click on “Change date and time settings”.

Then click on the "Change date and time" button.

Set the desired numbers on the time jack, and click the "OK" button.

There is also a slightly different shape. Click the "Change time zone" button.

In the window that appears, select your time zone from the available list.

Click on the "OK" button.

In this case, the system time, and therefore the Skype time, will be changed according to the selected time zone.

Change the time through the Skype interface

But sometimes you just need to change the time in the Skype software without translating the Windows system clock. How do i do it?

Open the Skype program. Click on your own name, which is in the upper left of the program interface, near the avatar.

The personal data editing window opens. Click on the inscription at the bottom of the window: "Show full profile".

In the window that opens, find the parameter "Time". By default, it is configured as "My Computer", but we have to change it to another. Click on the set parameter.

A list of time zones opens. Select the one you want to fix.

After that, all actions performed in Skype will be fixed according to the set time zone, not the computer's system time.

However, the exact time setting, with the ability to change the hours and minutes to suit the user, is not available in Skype.

As you can see, the time in Skype can be changed in two ways: by changing the system time and setting the time zone in Skype itself. In most cases it is recommended to use the first option, but there are rare circumstances where you want the Skype time to be different from the system time on the computer.
