How do I enable additional clocks in Windows Vista?

I travel a good amount throughout the year to different time zones. I do not like to change my time in the system tray but here is a way to add additional clocks in Windows Vista.

I travel a good amount throughout the year to different time zones. I do not like to change my time in the system tray, but I have found a way to add additional clocks.

Right-click on the time and choose Adjust Date/Time (Figure A).

Click on the Additional Clocks (Figure B) tab and enter the appropriate time zone and display name. For example, I chose to put the time of a vendor that I am traveling to this week. The second clock is the headquarters of my company. You can choose to use this feature any way you like. It comes in very handy.
