How to adjust time in WinSCP

Time in WinSCPAs seen on the screenshot, there is 5 hour difference between Putty and WinSCP.
I just generated this file "DriveStatus" at 9:21AM EST. Granted that ESXi server is 1 hour off because the summer time just ended in our region, but the time in WinSCP is way off.
Is there a way to adjust the time or select timezone in WinSCP?

I can't still find the Environment page. Where do I go from the main menu that I posted above?

It's before that menu, start WinScp, and at the WinSCP Login screen, which lists all your sessions, there is a section called Environment above Directories, SSH, and Preferences.

Got it finally!
The default option was "Adjust remote timestamp to local conventions"
I tried both other options (Adjust with  ...DSL and Preserve Remote...) and created a file using CLI command, but they are still several hours off.

Those are the only options for WinSCP.

This is not a local issue, e.g. time zone on local PC compared to time zone on ESXi?

also is your ESXi in UTC/GMT.

"time zone on ESXi" ---> You were right. I never bothered to visit "Time Configuration". I enabled NTP and added NTP server "time-c.nist.gov". In one ESX, it updated the time immediately. In another ESX host, it did not. So manually I changed the time and still added NTP server "time-c.nist.gov".
