We use the computer for many things, and that is why we like to have it configured in the best possible way since this way we will find ourselves more comfortable during its use. The amount of adjustments that we can execute on our computer is usually quite wide since each user looks for different options..



When we configure macOS we define by default the physical location where we are, this allows the system to make certain configurations based on it, such as the subject of calendars, emails, notifications and others.


If for some reason we travel to another country or zone where the time zone changes, or also due to configuration errors, we can access the time zone settings on Mac or MacBook and set the desired zone. getFastAnswer will explain in this tutorial how to achieve this in a simple way..
