Analogue clock in windows RRS feed

  • Question

  • the analogue clock (you know, the interesting one) has gone.

    the shortcut mentioned around changing the registry (UseWin32TrayClockExperience=1) no longer works.

    how do we get the proper clock working again from windows - i'm not talking about installing a program to do this, but to do what has been in windows since I first started with windows 2 (way, way, way way back).

  • Open Registry Editor:

    In Start Search type Regedit  and hit the Enter key.

    After opening Registry Editor, navigate to the following key:


    Click on the Immersiveshell folder . create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value 

    Name it UseWin32TrayClockExperience. By default, the value would be 0. Set the value to 1. To change the value, double-click on UseWin32TrayClockExperience and enter 1
