Windows Vista has some new hidden features —which are useful in specific circumstances —say — the clock on the taskbar has a nice improvement that you might not notice: You can add a second (or third) clock to the display to keep track of the current time in a different part of the world. This comes in handy if you’re a telecommuter who has to keep in touch with the home office on the other side of the country, or if you build web applications and need to keep track of timestamps in GMT.

Start by clicking the clock in the taskbar. That opens up this display, showing your system time and the time zone you entered during setup.

Date_time

To add a second clock, click the Date and Time Settings link and click the Additional Clocks tab. Select the Additional Clock 1 check box and then choose a time zone. Give the new clock a label, if you wish.

Date_time_2

After you save your changes, click the taskbar clock again to see the new clock in action.

Date_time_3

Because this change doesn’t affect the system date or time, any user can customize the setting this way. You don’t need to be an administrator to make the change – and thus no User Account Control dialog boxes will appear.
