Microsoft is aware of the upcoming time zone change for the Palestinian Authority.



  • Daylight Saving Time (DST) will end at 01:00 on October 24, 2020 instead of October 31, 2020.


 


As there is insufficient time for Microsoft to release an update to support this change before it goes into effect, we recommend that customers temporarily disable the automatic DST adjustments in Windows to reflect the correct local time between October 24, 2020 and October 31, 2020.


This can be done in one of the two ways:



  • Select the Windows logo key, type “Date and time”, and select Date and time settings. From the Date & time settings page, toggle Adjust for daylight saving time automatically to Off.

  • Go to Control Panel > Date and Time > Change time zone and uncheck “Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time”.


 


After 01:00 on October 31, 2020, follow the steps below to re-enable automatic DST adjustments and ensure accurate time switching with future DST transitions.



  • Select the Windows logo key, type “Date and time”, and select Date and time settings. From the Date & time settings page, toggle Adjust for daylight saving time automatically to On.

  • Go to Control Panel > Date and Time > Change time zone and check “Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time”.



For Microsoft’s official policy on DST and time zone changes, please see Daylight saving time help and support. For information on how to update Windows to use the latest global time zone rules, see How to configure daylight saving time for Microsoft Windows operating systems.
