Introduction

In this article we will introduce you to one of the features of the Windows 8 operating system. Windows 8 is the latest operating system launched by Microsoft in the Windows operating system series. It comes with many of the latest and advanced features which make it easier and user-friendly for Windows beginners. There are some main features of the Windows 8 operating system; Metro UI screen, easy search feature, alarm clock and advanced task manager etc. So here we will talk about the clock in Windows 8, the system clock that shows the time according to a specific zone; generally it is set at the time when we the install Windows 8 operating system. The system clock has a feature by which we can add two more clocks of different specific zones as we want. This feature is useful for the situation where we are working with our two clients and they belong to different time zones.

So here we will give you a guideline in a step by step manner to set your system clock with two more clocks of different time zones; initially the system clock shows only one clock of which the time zone is set during the installation of the operating system. All the steps are given below.

Step 1: Open the Windows 8 operating system, see the right-side corner of the taskbar. You will find the time along with date on taskbar, to open the clock double-click on it.

Step 8: After clicking, the Date and Time window will appear in the default tab. Here you can make changes to your default clock (Time and Time zone) which has been set at installation time. But we want to add two additional clocks so we will go to the next tab Additional Clocks.
