How to Add Multiple Clocks (Time Zones) to Windows 7

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.

  1. Click the Date and Time on the far right corner of the Windows 7 task bar. Then click Change date and time settings….
  2. A new Date and Time window will pop up as shown below. Click the Change date and time… button.
  3. From here, ensure that your local settings (date, time etc) are all set correctly. Click OK when you’re done.
  4. 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.

  5. Now select the Internet Time tab to synchronize the time with the online time server of your choice. Click Change settings… button.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
