Is it possible to display the clock on the taskbar on each screen in Windows 8, preferably without 3rd-party tools?
Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607, build 14393.10) was pushed to standard update channels on August 2 2016, and now there is no longer any need to install third party software to use dual monitor taskbar clocks.
This screenshot of a dual-monitor setup shows the clock on both the left and the right monitor taskbars outlined in red. No additional configuration is required (other than allowing the install of the update).
You can't display the clock on both taskbar. It is possible to drag your primary taskbar to the second monitor providing they are unlocked first.
I wanted the same thing you were looking for. I just discovered if you hit Windows + c , this seems to bring the time and date to the lower left of the screen wherever you are. It helps me, and I hope it is helpful to others.
- Ultramon - ($$ but 30-day free trial period) mentioned by @Robert Kelly
- DisplayFusion - Only the Pro versions ($$ but 30-day free trial period) show the clock on all taskbars. Free version does not.
- Actual Multiple Monitors - 30-day free trial period
- MultiMon - Lighter weight version of zbar and ultramon, and easier to set up. Free version designed for XP. Paid versions have not been updated recently (no info on Win8+ support).
- T-Clock Redux - Free and open source (GitHub - pre-compiled binaries are available).
Finally, not a taskbar clock per se, but DexClock is an interesting (free) wallpaper-based clock solution that might address your needs.
Possible with a program called Ultramon. Link
Of course, this is WITH 3rd party tools, but it looks completely native once you get it setup. Just if you're still looking for a solution! Good luck.
As far as I know, this is currently not possible without a 3rd party utility.
For win7 there is an open-source tool: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dualmonitortb
It's a little bit unstable, but it does the job perfectly
