Returns the current time into the variable %_gmt% adjusted to Greenwich Mean Time, this can be useful when comparing events across multiple time zones or whenever you don’t want daylight savings to affect the result.

  ::gmt.cmd  Display the current time in GMT (World Time)

  @echo off
  Set _key=HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation
  :: find offset from GMT in minutes
  For /f "Tokens=3" %%G in ('Reg query %_key% /V ActiveTimeBias^|FIND "REG_DWORD"') do (
    Set /a _offset=%%G

  :: Convert to hours
  Set /a _offset_hours=%_offset% / 60

  :: Get current local time
  For /f "tokens=1-3 delims=1234567890 " %%a in ("%time%") Do set "delims=%%a%%b%%c"
  For /f "tokens=1-4 delims=%delims%" %%G in ("%time%") Do (

  :: Strip any leading spaces
  Set _hh=%_hh: =%

  :: Ensure the hours have a leading zero
  if 1%_hh% LSS 20 set _hh=0%_hh%

  Echo   Local time: %_hh%:%_min%

  :: add offset to the current time
  Set /a _hh=%_hh% + %_offset_hours%

  :: display result
  Echo   GMT time:   %_hh%:%_min%
