Add Extra Clocks for Different Time Zones in Windows 10

If you work with teams that are located in different time zones all over the world, it’s nice to know what the time is in their region. If you’re a long time Windows user, you probably already familiar with adding additional clocks for different time zones.

However, if you’re new to Windows or haven’t set this up before, here’s how to add the extra time zone clocks to the system tray. The process is basically the same as it has been in Windows 7 & 8, but we wanted to give you an update for Windows 10.

Windows 10 has different graphics for the clocks (and calendar) that you might be interested in checking out, too.

To start, click the clock on the taskbar in the lower-right corner of the screen. Right away you’ll see the new UI Microsoft has included that shows the time and a calendar. The round clocks are gone and replaced with a modern digital design. From here select Date and time settings underneath the calendar.

You can also navigate to Settings > Time & Language > Date & Time, but this way saves you a couple of clicks.

Then scroll down and select Add clocks for different time zones.

Now in the Date and Time dialog, under the Additional Clocks tab, select the Show this clock box and then choose the time zone you want and give it a name and click OK. Note that you can add two additional clocks.

    that only allows you to add one clock, I want to add 3 or 4. Why did they get rid of the analogue clocks on the desktop? Win 10 is a step back not forward.

    Why is Windows only limited to a maximum of 2 additional clocks ??

    because if you need more than 2 additional clocks you should have bought wall clocks instead of a computer and save your self hundreds of bucks.
