How to show Multiple Clocks on Windows 10 Taskbar

Did you know you can display multiple clocks in Windows 10? You can have Windows 10/8/7 display up to two clocks in the taskbar. By default, Windows asks for your location when you install it and shows the clock from the related time zone (UTC-12 to UTC+13: UTC stands for Universal Coordinated Time).

Need For Multiple Clocks In Windows

US Time Zone Map

Here are some of the reasons why you would want to Windows to show multiple clocks:

  1. Your clients or relatives live in a time zone other than your own
  2. You might be traveling, and you wish to know both the time in the place you are and the current time in your country
  3. You attend webinars (online meetings) that are scheduled in a different time zone

There are many websites that help you convert the time at your place into a different time zone. However, they require you to know the time zone abbreviation or the name of the cities for which, you wish to convert the time. For example, if you wish to know what is the equivalent of 11 AM IST in the US, you will have to think about the cities closer to the time zone code. Not all countries have a uniform time over the same time zone.

The United States itself has four different time zones: Pacific Time (PT), Mountain Standard Time (MT), Central Standard Time (CST) and Eastern Time Zone (ET).

Before proceeding to set up clocks, please note that you might not be able to set up accurate clocks for cities having a difference of fewer than 30 minutes. The following explains how to create additional clocks in Windows 10/8/7.
