Vista: Add Additional Clocks to Taskbar

Posted January 3, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Vista

Keeping track of time zones can be a bit of a pain, especially if you are collaborating with others in foreign countries. Vista gives you a convenient fix for this by allowing you to have up to two additional time zones that display whenever you hover your mouse over the clock. Here’s how . . .


1. Right-click on the clock in the taskbar.

2. Select Adjust Date/Time.

3. Select the Additional Clocks tab.

4. Check the box for additional clock 1 and/or 2 and select the time zone(s).

5. Type in a display name for your clock(s).

6. Click OK.

Now you can hover your mouse over the clock and see the what time it is in your friend’s time zone.
