Set the date and time

To set the date, time, time zone, or to use a 24-hour clock, use the Settings menu.

  1. Sign in to your Chromebook and click the status area, where your account picture appears.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click the Show advanced settings link at the bottom of the page.
  4. In the "Date and time" section, you can:
    • Pick your time zone from the menu.
    • Switch to a 24-hour clock, instead of a 12-hour clock.

Your Chromebook automatically sets the time when you’re connected to the Internet.
