One of the shortcomings, which they are already working on solving, is the absence of the clock in the taskbar in secondary monitors in Windows 11. The Redmond giant has left many details in the pipeline and for the most demanding users it is unforgivable . If we work with a full screen app on the main monitor, we cannot see the time on the secondary monitor. Fortunately ElevenClock solves this problem.
ElevenClock retrieves time in Windows 11
ElevenClock shows a clock on every screen except the main screen (which already has a Windows 11 clock). Updates every second to make sure you don’t end up with different times on our taskbars. The creator of ElevenClock shares a tongue-in-cheek description of the app on GitHub:
A taskbar clock for secondary taskbars in Windows 11. When Microsoft engineers were creating Windows 11, they forgot to add a clock to the secondary screen taskbar. So I did it. ElevenClock is a simple application that provides the same functionality as in Windows 10’s secondary taskbar clock.
These are all the features of the application:
- Supports all system locales and clock formats (extracted from operating system) *
- It is displayed on all screens except the main one (because it has the default system clock)
- Supports dark and light theme
- Has a hide button to avoid full screen hassles
- Imitates the animation of the Windows 11 taskbar clock on hover
- Supports task bars at the top of the screen
- Supports enabling seconds via locale or regedit (Windows 11 default clock can’t do that)
- ElevenClock downloads and installs updates automatically, so we don’t have to worry
- Clicking on the clock shows / hides notifications and calendar panel
- Correct size and alignment on HiDPi displays (100%, 200%, 300%) AND on fractional HiDPI displays (125%, 150%, 175%, 250%, etc.)
- Correct size and alignment on monitors at different scales (Display1: 100%, Display2: 150%, Display3: 225%, etc.)
- The clock updates the time every second, so you won’t see different times on all of your taskbars
Fixing Windows 11 no-shows
As is often the case, developers have been quick to help users have the best experience in Windows 11. The initial shortcomings can be solved by apps as in the case of the contextual menu or in the watch.
