How do I add a second clock in Windows?

Adding a Second Clock in Windows

Adding a second clock to your Windows computer is easy, and it can be done in just a few steps. The process involves using the Windows Regional Settings to add a new time zone, then setting the clock accordingly. As long as you have an internet connection, the second clock should always be up-to-date with the correct time. Here’s how to set up the second clock on your Windows machine.

Step 1: Open the Control Panel

First, open the Control Panel. You can do this by clicking on the Windows Start button, then selecting Control Panel from the menu. Once the Control Panel window has loaded, select “Clock, Language and Region.”

Step 2: Select the Time Zone

In the Clock, Language and Region window, select “Change Date and Time Settings.” In the pop-up window, choose the “Additional Clocks” tab. Here you can check the box next to “Show this clock” and then choose your time zone from the drop-down menu.

Step 3: Synchronize the Clock

Once you’ve selected the time zone, you’ll need to synchronize the clock so that it displays the correct time. To do this, click the “Synchronize Now” button in the Date and Time window. Windows will then connect to an online timeserver and sync the clock.

Step 4: Set the Display Options

Finally, you can customize how the second clock displays on your screen. To do this, click the “Change display options” link in the Additional Clocks tab. Here you can determine which clock will show the date, the format of the date, and which clock will show the time. You can also customize the font, size and color of the clock display.

Once you’ve completed these steps, your second clock should now be visible on your desktop. You can move the clock to any location on the screen and resize it as needed. To change the time zone of the clock, simply return to the Date and Time window, select the “Additional Clocks” tab, and select a new time zone. With the second clock set up, you can now easily keep track of timezones around the world.
