Time and Language Add or Remove Additional Clocks for Different Time Zones in Windows 11


  • Staff

Windows can display up to three clocks on the taskbar: one for the local time and two additional clocks for different time zones. After you set up additional clocks, you can view them by clicking on or hover the pointer over the taskbar clock.

This tutorial will show you how to setup and show up to two additional clocks for different time zones on the taskbar for your account in Windows 11.


Each addition clock is saved to the registry keys below:

Clock 1 = HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\TimeDate\AdditionalClocks\1

Clock 2 = HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\TimeDate\AdditionalClocks\2



EXAMPLE: Additional clocks for different time zones on taskbar

Hello, :-)

You could increase the text size, but it's applied to everything though.
