With some types of work, it is important or helpful to keep track of the time in other time zones. Some businesses even put multiple clocks on the wall for various time zones. With the clock in the bottom-right corner of the Taskbar on your computer, you see the date and time. If you hover over the time and date, a small pop-up displays the day, date, and year. (See Figure 1.)

Wouldn't it be nice when you hover over the time if you could see what the time is in another time zone area without doing the math in your head? Windows 10 allows you to achieve this easily.
Follow these steps to quickly add up to two additional clocks to your Taskbar for quick reference:

When you hover over the clock in the Taskbar, Windows displays more information. Instead of just the date it showed before it will now display two (or three, depending on your choice in step 5) additional lines. The first is the Date, followed by the Local Time, and then the clock you added. (See Figure 3.)

As an additional feature, when you click on the clock in the Taskbar, Windows displays the expanded Date and Calendar pop-up. At the top of the pop-up Windows shows the additional clocks. (See Figure 4.)

By enabling additional time zone clocks, you'll be able to keep track of the time zones important to your work or personal life.
