Make your taskbar clock show sec­onds

Computer Active (UK) - - Make Windows Better -

The clock at the bot­tom right of your taskbar only dis­plays the time in hours and min­utes. If you pre­fer a lit­tle more pre­ci­sion, there’s an easy way to make it show sec­onds as well. Press the Win­dows key, type regedit, press En­ter, then click Yes to open your PC’S Reg­istry Ed­i­tor.

Now nav­i­gate through the fol­low­ing folder path us­ing the drop­down menus on the right: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Soft­ware\mi­crosoft\win­dows\ Cur­rentver­sion\ex­plorer\ad­vanced. Right-click the Ad­vanced folder on the left, move your cur­sor to New in the pop-up win­dow that ap­pears, then se­lect ‘DWORD (32-bit) Value’. Next, type Show sec­ond sin­sys tem­clock, then press En­ter. Now dou­ble-click this value, click 1 in the ‘Value data’ field, click OK (see screen­shot be­low), then close the Reg­istry Ed­i­tor.

Restart your PC and your taskbar clock will now dis­play sec­onds.
