Microsoft released a new build of Windows 10 and with it comes a plethora of new features and updates. One item that has been updated but is not turned on by default is a new calendar and clock widget that you can see at the top of this post.
If you want to enable this feature in your install of Windows 10, it's quite easy, if you know how to tweak the registry. With that being said, only proceed if you have experience adding values to the registry because if you do this incorrectly, it can break your install of Windows 10.
- Open Regedit.exe
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell
- Right click and select New - > DWORD (32-bit) and call it UseWin32TrayClockExperience with no spaces, exactly as written.
- Click on the clock in the system tray
Once completed, you will be able to see the new calendar and clock. Other than the new UI, there is not much else to the feature but seeing that it is polished, we expect this to arrive in the final release of Windows 10.
