Ubuntu and Windows 10 dual boot - Time issue Solution

Submitted by Divya on Apr 23, 2017 - 08:30

When switching between Ubuntu OS and Windows 10 OS, there is a time difference in Windows OS. It is because Ubuntu OS sets the BIOS time to UTC, then Ubuntu calculates local time based on UTC and displays it correctly. But Windows 7 / 10 OS takes the BIOS time whatever it is and shows as Local Time.
In this case, you can solve it by following any one of the method listed below.
1. Set Windows OS to take the BIOS time as UTC
Open the Registry Editor (regedit) (Run -> regedit)

Idea Are you want to browse internet from your Ubuntu OS through GPRS from your mobile?
In ubuntu 9.04 many mobile phones will be deducted automatically.
I am using SonyEricssion K320.
After your mobile phone deducted, go to edit network connections
Enter the following APN for Aircel
For Airtel

Now, you will browse internet very fast through gprs.
When comparing to Windows Operating system, Browsing in ubuntu OS is very fast in particularly through Mobile GPRS connection.
