Timezone OneDrive (Web) is incorrect.
The OneDrive (like Outlook) has a serious problem with time. In Outlook I can't set my correct time, he always adds extra hours when choosing my time zone, and the OneDrive too. I just edit a document the 5 pm. And the OneDrive says it was edited the 10 pm!
This is an old problem, you do not intend to solve?
Setting timezone across Microsoft 365 web apps is a supported capability and I would recommend working with Microsoft Support for further help.
Here are some additional resources as well:
this seems to be a mismatch between local tine (GUI) & UTC (Versioning)!

There is no setting like that there. There is a "Language" setting, but not "Regional" or "Language and Time" as seen in other posts. I am the site admin for our site, and cannot find it. It does not show under the help file search either.
Go to the gear icon on the upper right corner. Select 'Site settings', then 'Regional Settings'. The Time Zone drop down is right at the top. This must be done is the Microsoft Edge browser! Any other browser and the 'OK' button on the bottom right doesn't appear, preventing you from saving the change.

My organisation is having the same issue. All personal OneDrive accounts are created with Pacific Time as the default region causing confusion with users as all are in the UK. We raised a support call with Microsoft who said this is a known issue and at the moment this has to be changed on a per user basis. They also asked for me to post on this forum

It is really very inconvenient that the timezone on the Web OneDrive is Pacific time zone and apparently from what I reading in the comments, this problem has not yet solved by Microsoft! Anyone has any update on this?
Me too, it is really disturbance.

Been trying to get this to work for the past 2 years. MS has dropped the ball on this and are nowhere near trying to fix it. I don't have issues with Google drive, sets the time accordingly.
I have to instruct my 8000+ users to do this manually...The support is also not much help on this, the powershell they helps us with never worked properly and when it did it wiped the contents of the drives...really not impressed.
how to problem time zone
Mike Wells commented
I'm not sure if this is the same or a different time zone issue. We are located in Massachusetts so Eastern time, but all new accounts are created in Pacific time. I should be able to change the default time zone for my domain so that I don't have to tell every individual user to edit their settings. We have to enter location information so why not drive it off that.

I have the so-called beta where the OneDrive app does both pesonal and business (but, of course, not SharePoint sites - come on Microsoft!).
BUT... this is a serious issue, and I'm amazed more people have not complained.
The issue has NOTHING to do with Timezone settings. Because a file should always have a timestamp that is timezone independent, and then the time will show based on the deivce I am using to look at it.
I am convinved the poblem is on the servers and not the clients. BUT it actualyl stops me from using the app. Period.
EVERY file I save on a local drive will end up on the server and other PCs (or even a Mac) with the time wong (for me it is consitently 9 hours in the future). But ironically, on the local PC, assuming I don't update the file on another device or the website, will keep it's original time.
So, not only do I have wrong times on other devices, it would be stretching to say that my files are even in sync.

Is the original question about OneDrive Personal? If so, you'll need to edit your email account settings. It's pretty convoluted to drill down into; here goes:
You start with "Edit Profile," then go to "Account Settings," then to "Your Info," then to "Edit your personal info." Now, take a look at "Time zone" -- it might be set to "Universal Time - GMT." Choose your time zone, and Save. Then sign out of your account, and then sign in. Your docs should now reflect your local time zone.

When in OneDrive on the Web, select the gear icon and then Site Settings and you will be able to change the time zone and a lot more.

Ocorre o mesmo aqui, existe uma diferença entre horário local e o que está no https://onedrive.live.com/ (ver imagem)
I just edit a document the 5 pm. And the OneDrive says it was edited the 10 pm!
WHEN WILL THIS BE FIXED???
I have the same problem. This creates challenges when trying to ensure all devices accessing my one drive have the up to date documents.

And Yes, time zone settings are correct.
