Here's the best way to show the clock on all monitors on Windows 11.

Windows 11 clock on all monitors

On Windows 11, you can show the clock on all monitors, but using a third-party tool, and in this guide, we’ll show you how. Although Microsoft was trying to simplify the Taskbar experience, it ended up removing some useful functionalities, including the ability to show the time and date across displays on a multi-monitor setup.

However, if you want that feature back, GitHub user, Martí Climent, managed to create an application called ElevenClock, which allows you to effortlessly show the clock on all the monitors on Windows 11.

According to the notes, ElevenClock supports all the Windows 11 locales and time formats. It only appears on all the monitors, except the primary one. It supports the dark and light system modes. It behaves like the default system clock, and you can even click the icon to open Notification Center. It supports correct alignment when using different DPI settings. You can show seconds, weekdays, and more.

ElevenClock is free, and you can download the installer directly from GitHub or install it using the winget command. If you find the tool useful, consider supporting the author using the support link on the GitHub page.

In this guide, you will learn the steps to install an open-source app to show the clock across all the monitors connected to your Windows 11 computer.

To show the Windows 11 Taskbar clock on all monitors, use these steps:

  1. Open Start.

  2. Search for Command Prompt, right-click the top result, and select the Run as administrator option.

  3. Type the following command to install ElevenClock and press Enter:

    winget install --id SomePythonThings.ElevenClock

  4. Open Start.

  5. Search for ElevenClock and click the top result to open the app.

Once you complete the steps, the time and date should now appear on the secondary monitors.

You can always right-click the ElevenClock clock in the Taskbar to access the settings. The settings are self-explanatory, but among other things, under the Date & Time Settings section, you have options also to show seconds and the weekday.
