Have you ever wanted to display the seconds in the Windows Taskbar Clock? With a simple registry key creation this can easily be achieved. Here is how we do it:

Open the Registry Editor by typing regedit into Windows Search

regedit in Windows Search

Next you want to click on HKEY_CURRENT_USER then Software then Microsoft

Next you want to click Windows then Current Version

Then you want to Explorer then Advanced, here is where we will create our DWORD Registry Key.

From the above menu select Edit then New DWORD (32-bit) Value

Give the new value the name ShowSecondsInSystemClock and press Enter to create the key.

Now double click the new Key and give it a Hexadecimal value of 1 then press OK.

Now that the key has been created you will need to log off before the Clock will be updated to show seconds.
