Update 2010-03-23 – Sorry, but the images and downloads were hosted on a server that is no longer available.  I will try to find the sample code bits and images on a backup sometime!

It's now been over 2 months since I began using Vista as my primary OS, and to-date I've experienced nothing but end-user bliss J There are so many cool features to which I'm really growing attached – it would be rather difficult to revert to XP. One of these excellent features is Additional Clocks in the Date and Time Settings. This feature allows you to add two additional clocks to the task bar, providing a view of alternate time zones in two of the following ways:

Mouse hover:

Single-click:

With team members and clients spread across the globe, this feature is greatly appreciated! Now I don't have to keep Yahoo! Widgets or Google Gadgets around for this sort of thing.

Good catch on this one. I always just got annoyed when I clicked on the clock and the whole calendar/clock would appear. But this is extremely useful for the reasons you've stated. I work with multi-site teams and this is going to come in handy for scheduling meetings, calls, etc.

Thanks!

Martin,

Thanks for the note. If you're referring to Microsoft Time Zone, you're entirely correct. It provides similar functionality. Here's a link for those who are interested (also works on Windows Server 2003):
