Some users like to keep track of time in different countries and time zones. The reason might be related to work where you need to keep track of time in multiple locations around the world or for a simple reason to keep track of time at your native place when you are in a foreign location.
A simple google search can display the time in other locations, but for frequent time checking they prefer a software or App to do the work automatically. There are hundreds of software that can display time zones on your desktop. Some software needs to be installed like any other program, some are stand-alone applications which need internet connection to keep track of time.
Not much users are aware that there is an option in Windows 10 which allow users to display multiple time zones in Windows 10
- Click Start > Settings
- Select Time & Language
- On the left pane, go to Date & time
- Scroll down to Related Settings > click Add clocks for different time zones
- Under Additional Clocks Tab, check Show this clock. Then select Time zone of your preferred location. Also Enter a display name to make it easier to identify.
Once the settings are configured, you will be able to view the time from Task bar Time settings.
A drawback is that it can only display 2 different time zones other than the local time zone. If you want more time zones to be displayed. Another disadvantage is there is no option to use a floating clock on the desktop using this method. For these features, you may need to depend on a third-party program.
