Quick Start

TZones is very intuitive to use and configure but just in case you have problems try the following steps.

  • The first time the application runs it will display its Preferences dialog, use the Local Time: option to select a city in your time zone and check or uncheck the Daylight Saving checkbox as appropriate.
  • Press OK to leave the preferences dialog.
  • You can change which four cities to display the time in by selecting Time Zones... from the Options menu.
