This page describes the system settings on your Xbox One console. To access the system settings, navigate left on the Home screen to open the Xbox Guide, select Settings, and then select All settings.
Here you can find information you’ll need to register and troubleshoot your console, including the serial number, console ID, OS version, Xbox Live device ID, copyright information, and more.
This button allows you to set the device name, which will identify your console when there are multiple Xbox One consoles on the same network.
This area allows you to view when your console last checked for an update, and when the last update was installed.
Restore factory defaults
This option erases all accounts, apps, games, saved games (that haven’t been synced to the cloud), and settings, and then restarts the console.
Important This option should be used rarely and should not be considered a troubleshooting step.
The language and location settings allow you to change the language display information of your console. If you move to a different time zone or region, you should update your console settings here.

Automatically adjust for Daylight Saving
You can choose to have the console clock change automatically with Daylight Saving Time.
The system time settings are inaccessible (and will appear grayed out) while you're connected to Xbox Live. During those times, your console uses “net time,” which is automatically pulled from time servers online. The two time settings you can change when you’re not connected to Xbox Live are Time and Date.
