Hi Irbrister,

Whilst not possible to just set Task Scheduler to a different time zone, you may find this idea on Technet useful. It provides a workaround solution to synchronize to another Time Zone.

Another option is to simply determine what the offset is from your location to US Mountain Standard Time. Once you know that, calculate what the local time will be to suit the UMST time you're after and just set the scheduled task to run at the appropriate local time.

As an example:

Want task to run at UMST 10pm daily

Assume USMT 10pm time would be 4am Local Time

Set task to run daily at 4am - which would be 10pm USMT.

Make sense?

Hope that's helpful.
