Deleting Additional Clocks

Written by Allen Wyatt (last updated March 18, 2019)

After you've added an additional clock or two in Windows, you may no longer have need for them. You can easily delete any additional clocks without affecting the system clock maintained in your system for Windows. Here's how you do it in Windows 10:

  1. Click on the Start button in the bottom left corner. This will open the Start screen.
  2. Click on the Settings button (it looks like a small gear). Windows displays the Settings dialog box.
  3. Click on the Time & Language option, which modifies what you see in the Settings dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  4. Figure 1. The Date & Time screen of the Settings dialog box.

  5. Click on Add Clocks for Different Time Zones. Windows displays the Date and Time dialog box.
  6. Make sure the Additional Clocks tab is displayed. (See Figure 2.)
  7. Figure 2. The Additional Clocks tab of the Date and Time dialog box.

  8. Clear the Show this Clock check box that corresponds with the additional clock you want to delete.
  9. Click OK to close the Date and Time Settings dialog box.

Follow these steps if you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8:

  1. Click once on the date and time in the Notifications area at the right side of the Taskbar. Windows displays a calendar and clock.
  2. Click the Change Date and Time Settings link. Windows displays the Date and Time dialog box.
  3. Make sure the Additional Clocks tab is displayed.
  4. Clear the Show this Clock check box that corresponds with the additional clock you want to delete.
  5. Click OK to close the Date and Time Settings dialog box.

That's it! The additional clock no longer appears when you click the date and time in the Notification area of the Taskbar.
