Add Multiple Clocks To The Windows 10 Taskbar


For one reason or another, the need to have knowledge of the local time In a particular location or two, Is rather Important and given we spend so many hours In a day navigating on our computer, It makes perfect sense to have the option readily available with a click of the mouse. Wouldn't It be great If you could apply additional clocks to your PC, natively within Windows 10? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add multiple clocks to the Windows 10 Taskbar.


Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. By default, when you click on the date & time In the system tray, the flyout displays everything relative to your time zone, as Illustrated In the Image below.



Did you know that you can add up to two additional clocks, that will display the time In any time zone of your choice? Windows 10 allows you to do this with Incredible ease, and I will demonstrate how, by using It's native option that's located In the Windows Settings. So without further ado, let's see how this Is done.

Step One:

Firstly, open the Windows Settings, and then click on Time & language as shown below.


Step Two:

Next, at the bottom right of the window, hit Add clocks for different time zones.


Step Three:

This Is where you'll add the clocks to your computer's taskbar. Click the Additional Clocks tab, and then decide how many you wish to add, by selecting the Show this clock checkbox and choose the time zone thereafter. In the Enter display name Input field, do just that by giving your clocks a name, and then hit OK to finalize the process. For the purpose of this guide, I've added two clocks with their respective time zones as per the Image below.


Step Four:

Upon clicking the date & time In my taskbar, as you can see, both additional clocks are displayed right above my (default) current time zone.


Last Step:

Alternatively, you can mouseover the date & time, and the description of every clock will be displayed.


Final Thoughts:

This Implementation, comes to very good use If you have family and friends located In another time zone and you plan on calling them every so often. Of course, you don't want to call In the middle of the night whilst they're asleep, do you?

The good thing about this, Is that there's no need to use any third-party software, nor editing the Windows Registry. And you can reverse the change just as easy as It was applied.
