With customers from around the world using AlwaysOnPC to connect to their favorite flash based websites on their iPad we wanted to show you how to customize the timezone settings to match your local time. With your AlwaysOnPC virtual computer not only can you visit sites from your iPad that would otherwise be inaccessible, you can also edit, save and share documents using Office Suite programs from your iPad.
To customize your timezone settings from your AlwaysOnPC virtual computer click the System tab at the bottom of the screen, select Preferences and then scroll down to Timezone Set. Then follow the prompts to customize the time for your location. Once completed you will need to log out and then back in to save your changes.
