Windows 10’s taskbar Clock can display the precise time down to the second. This feature requires a Registry hack to enable and only works on Windows 10. Let’s find out.
This is for Windows 10
Editing the Registry
Warning: The Registry Editor is a powerful tool and misusing it can render your system unstable or even inoperable. This is a pretty simple hack and, as long as you stick to the instructions, you should not have any problems. If you have never worked with the Registry Editor before, consider reading about how to use the Registry Editor before you get started. And definitely back up the Registry and create a System Restore point before making changes.
First, open the Registry Editor by clicking Start, typing “regedit” into the Cortana search box at the bottom of the Start menu, and pressing Enter. Give the Registry Editor permission to make changes to your PC. Refer to the below image:
Next, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key in the Registry Editor:
See the below image:
Now, right-click the Advanced key in the left pane and select:
New > DWORD (32-bit) Value
See the following image:
Next, name the value
and press Enter. If you type “Sustem” instead of “System” or “Second” instead of “Seconds” in the name, these will not work, it must be the exact wording. Refer to the below image:
Now, double-click the value you just created, enter a value data of 1, and click OK. See the below image;
Next, you can now close the Registry Editor. You will have to sign out and sign back in again before your changes will take effect. To view the Clock with seconds, view the Date and Time in your System Tray in the lower right-hand corner. See the following image:
