Whether you have colleagues, friends, or family in different time zones, keeping track of it can take some effort. Windows allows you to add multiple time zone clocks to the taskbar, making it much easier.
It’s much more convenient than searching the web “time in [city]. “It may even be more precise than trying to memorize time zones yourself. For example, suppose you have colleagues in Arizona, who usually don’t observe Summer time. How many hours in front of or behind your current time zone is Arizona currently? No need to remember – just check the clock.
To find these settings, right-click the clock in the Windows 10 taskbar and select “Adjust date / time.” You can also go to Settings> Time and language> Date and time.
Scroll down and click “Add clocks for different time zones” under Related Settings.
To add another clock, check the “Display this clock” box, choose a time zone and enter a display name.
This name will be displayed in the tooltip that appears when you hover over the clock in the taskbar and in the context panel that appears when you click the time. You can type anything you want. For example, you can enter the name of the time zone or the name of a city. You can even type the names of people you know or the team you work with in this time zone.
You can add up to two additional time zones here; that’s it. When you are done, click “OK”.
To see your other time zone clocks without clicking on anything, you can hover your mouse cursor over the taskbar clock. You will see the time in these other time zones.
You can also click on the clock in the taskbar and look at the top of the panel. You will see the times in your other two selected time zones just below the local time zone.
Want more useful things on your clock popup? Add your calendar! You can sync Windows 10 with online calendars like Google Calendar, Apple’s iCloud calendar, and Exchange calendars.
You can enable clocks for multiple time zones in Windows 7 and 8.1, also. Right click on the clock in the task bar, click on “Adjust date / time” and select the “Additional clocks” tab. Everything works similarly, although the panel that appears after clicking on the clock in your taskbar is different on older versions of Windows.
