Our regular WVD users can't change the timezone in Windows by right-clicking on the clock and going to "Adjust date/time" (which is fine).

 

However, if they open Outlook and then go to File > Options > Calendar > Time Zones and change the time zone there, it does change the WVD's time zone which affects all other users of the WVD. 

 

Is there a way to prevent this? Or to allow different WVD users in the same pool on the same VM have their own time zones?

Thanks, Eva. I'll pass this on to our sysadmins and see if that helps resolve the issue. Although it still seems odd that a user with administrator privs, and can't change the date/time in Windows via control panel, can still do it through Outlook.
