Windows 10 displays different time after reboot from Linux

Using dual-boot Windows and Linux has several advantages. If one system fails to update, you can still work with the other one.

I experienced strange problem that Windows was always shifting the time about 2 hours after rebooting from Linux. One solution was to let Windows determine the time zone, but that worked until next reboot to Linux and back to Windows.

The solution that worked for me was to open regedit.exe and define following key as QWORD set to value 1:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\RealTimeIsUniversal

Then reboot the machine to Linux and back to Windows and everything was ok. No more time shifts.

Thanks to Ailurus for the solution.
