When using multiple displays, you can configure Windows 11 to show the clock on all taskbars on all displays. Here is how to do it.
One of the best ways to increase productivity is to use multiple displays. When using multiple displays, you get more usable screen real estate to place all your active Windows in such a way that it improves your workflow.
After connecting two or more displays, Windows shows several options to configure how it manages all the displays. One of those options is how the taskbar looks and functions.
Windows doesn’t show the clock on all taskbars on all displays by default. Instead, it shows the clock on the main taskbar. i.e., the taskbar on the primary display.
If the primary display is at the center and acts as the main display, the clock on that taskbar is fine. However, if it is not, you can configure Windows to show the clock on all taskbars on all displays. That way, no matter which monitor you are looking at, you will see the clock on the taskbar.
So, without further ado, let me show you how to show the clock on all taskbars on all displays in simple and easy steps.

Note: In recent versions, Windows 11 shows the clock on the taskbar of all displays. So, you don’t have to use unique configurations or software. However, if you want to customize the look and feel of the clock, then use the below software.
