How do I change the system timezone?

Your device should be preconfigured with the correct timezone when you receive it. In the event you switch locations and the system timezone is no longer accurate, you can change the timezone by following these steps.

What You'll Need

  • An Xhibit signage device
  • Physical access to the Xhibit signage device
  • A computer mouse
  • A keyboard

If you meet the requirements listed above, simply follow the steps below to change the timezone.

Changing the Timezone

Choosing the widgets tab
  • Start the Xhibit and wait for your signage to display. Now plug a mouse and a keyboard into the two USB ports on the side.
  • On the keyboard, press and hold down the "Alt" key.
  • With the "Alt" key held down, press the "Tab" key and then release both keys.
  • If you do not see a "Tab" key, look for a key with two arrows pointing in different directions as shown in the image.
