Convert time to UTC in Powershell

Hello again!

This time I’d like to spend a moment on many times asked question, how to convert time in Powershell.

So first, let’s see how to convert a time into UTC, on which I spent a few hours in past.

$Time = [datetime]"2.10.2016 13:44:00"
$FromTimeZone = [System.TimeZoneInfo]::FindSystemTimeZoneById("Central Europe Standard Time")
$ConvertedTime = ([System.TimeZoneInfo]::ConvertTimeToUtc($Time, $FromTimeZone)) -f "MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss"
$ConvertedTime

Cool, isn’t it? But what if you need to convert it from different time zone? Just get all the possibilities displayed out

[System.TimeZoneInfo]::GetSystemTimeZones()

Have a good day,

Robot(ICT) guy
