By following this guide you can display multiple time zone clocks in the “date and time” section of the Windows 7 Task Bar, making it easier for you to check what time it is in other parts of the world. In addition, you’ll be able to sync these clocks with a time server, ensuring that your PC always has the correct time – in all time zones.
- Click the Date and Time on the far right corner of the Windows 7 task bar. Then click Change date and time settings….
- A new Date and Time window will pop up as shown below. Click the Change date and time… button.
- From here, ensure that your local settings (date, time etc) are all set correctly. Click OK when you’re done.
- Now select the Additional Clocks tab. Select the time zone you want to display from the Select time zone:pull-down menu. Place a check in the box labeled Show this clock, and finally, give it a name in the Enter display name: field. For example, if you’ve added a clock for Eastern Time (US & Canada) – you may want to name that clock “New York”. Alternately, you can ‘name’ the clock after a friend that lives in that city – so you’ll always know what time it is before you call him/her. :)
Repeat this process to add additional clocks. Click Apply and then OK.
- Now select the Internet Time tab to synchronize the time with the online time server of your choice. Click Change settings… button.
- Place a check in the box labeled Synchronize with an Internet time server. Choose the server (time.windows.com is fine), then click the Update Now button. Finally, click OK.
- Now you can view multiple clocks in Windows 7 by simply left-clicking the time/date displayed in the lower right corner of your taskbar.
