Are you carrying your Windows 7 laptop while you are touring different countries? Then, why don’t you enable it to guide you in planning meetings and tasks with different time zones? In case you want to view different time zones, then here we have shown some simple to add multiple zones to the Windows 7 System Tray Clock.
Before you begin with these following steps to view different time zones in Windows 7, you need to know this. Have you upgraded to Windows 7 from an earlier version and noticed slight differences in the System Clock? The System Clock in the tray of Windows 7 is slightly enhanced from that of earlier versions of Windows. This new improved clock in System Tray shows the current time with current date unlike previous Windows versions which would only show time by default. Windows 7 will allow you to add more clocks when you click ‘Change date and time settings’ option in the bottom.
- This will open the ‘Date and Time’ dialog, where you can change your system time, date, and time zone.
- To add additional clocks to the taskbar, select the ‘Additional Clocks’ tab.Â You can add up to 2 more clocks; just check ‘Show this clock’, select the time zone you want that clock to show, and enter a name that will help you remember what that time’s for.
- Now select the appropriate options for second clock.
- Click ‘OK’
- Now you can quickly see the time in all three places by simply hovering over the clock in your taskbar.
- If you click on the clock in the Taskbar, you’ll now see 3 clocks.Â The larger one is the current time in your time zone, while the other clocks are the extra ones you added.Â They’ll even show the correct day of the week below the clock if it’s currently a different day in these time zones.
