If you travel a lot or have regular meetings with people on the other side of the world, having multiple clocks to quickly check the current time is pretty helpful. Follow the below steps to show multiple clocks on taskbar in Windows.
By default Windows only ever shows one clock on the taskbar and in the date and time flyout menu. Generally, the time and date are automatically set by Windows depending on your location information provided by you and data gather by itself.
For the most part, most Windows users will never have to touch the date and time settings in Windows. However, if you want to add an additional clock to Windows, you have to go through manual steps. There might be a number of reasons why you need multiple clocks in Windows. Those reasons include but not limited to clients on the other side of the globe, traveling, need to attend particular events or streams happening in the different timezones or countries, etc.
No matter the reason, you can force Windows to show multiple clocks on taskbar. Let me show you can do this.
Add Multiple Clocks to Taskbar
The best thing is that Windows makes it quite easy to add multiple clocks and then show them on the taskbar. You can show up to two additional clocks in Windows. All you have to do is, select a couple of options and you are good to go.
1. First, right-click on the taskbar clock appearing at the bottom-right corner of your monitor. Select, the "Adjust date/time" option.
2. The above action will open the Date & Time settings page in the PC Settings app. Here, scroll down and click on the "Add clocks for different timezones" link appearing at the bottom of the page.
3. As soon as you click on the link, the good old win32 Date & Time settings window will open. Here, select the "Show this clock" checkbox and select the timezone according to your needs.
As I said earlier, you can choose up to two additional clocks. In my case, I selected both checkboxes so that I can see Eastern time and Tokyo time. Of course, you can name the clocks anything you want. Just replace "Clock 1" and "Clock 2" with your own names.
4. Finally, click on the "Ok" button to save changes.
That is all. You've added new additional clocks in taskbar. Of course, since additional clocks can clutter up the UI, you can only see one clock at a time. However, if you hover your mouse on the clock, you will see additional clocks.
When you click on the taskbar clock, you will newly added clocks right under the main clock.
That is all. It is that simple to show multiple clocks on taskbar in Windows. If you like this article, do check out these Date & Time articles.
