If an RDS host is in one time zone and a user is in another time zone, by default, when the user connects to an RDS desktop, the desktop displays time that is in the time zone of the RDS host. You can enable the Time Zone Redirection group policy setting to make the RDS desktop display time in the local time zone. This policy setting applies to application sessions as well.



  1. On the Active Directory server, open the Group Policy Management Console.
  2. Expand your domain and Group Policy Objects.
  3. Right-click the GPO that you created for the group policy settings and select Edit.
  4. In the Group Policy Management Editor, navigate to Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Horizon View RDSH Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Device and Resource Redirection.
  5. Enable the setting Allow time zone redirection.
