As we mentioned earlier today, Microsoft made improvements to the system tray clock in Windows 10 build 10056. Now, when you click the time/date on the system tray, you will see a new popup showcasing the latest time, as well as a mini-calendar. If you click on the “additional clocks” link, the “Alarms & Clock” app will launch, giving you a view of the World Clock, as well as options to set an alarm, timer, or stopwatch.
If you don’t like this new look for the tray clock, you can easily edit the registry and bring back the old look. We do not recommend or endorse editing your registry since it can break your operating system, but for hardcore users out there, check out the Tweet below on what you need to do to bring back that old clock look. Enjoy!
