Add Additional Clocks to Taskbar

Posted June 2006 by Steve Sinchak

Ever want to keep track of the time in a different time zone?  With Vista/7 you can now track two additional time zones with mini clocks that show up when you hover the mouse over the clock.

Add additional time zones:

  1. Right click on the clock in the taskbar and select Adjust Date/Time.

  2. Click on the Additional Clocks tab.

  3. Check the box for either additional clock 1 or 2 and select the time zone.

  4. Type in a display name for your click and hit OK.

Now when you hover your mouse over or click on the clock you will see the additional time zone.

Tip:  You can also add additional clocks to the sidebar/desktop by adding more clock gadgets.
