While traveling internationally sometimes it becomes hectic for such people to keep track of time zones and they find the task of changing the times as per the zones quite tiring. Therefore Windows 7 allows such users to place up to 3 clocks in the system tray so that they need not to change the time zones of their regular clocks that frequently. This process requires administrative privileges on Windows 7 computer and as an administrator of such machine if you want to place up to 3 clocks in the system tray you are required to follow the steps given below:
