Showing Multiple Clock In System Tray | Show Multiple Time Zone

Here is one tip for getting a little extra functionality from the Windows clock on the taskbar. As simple as that clock is, many users need to keep track of time in multiple time zones.

Fortunately, you can do that right within your taskbar (Works With Windows Vista And Windows 7). And it’s profitable to those who monitors other time zones and travel around with portable computers like notebook, netbook, etc.

Right-click your clock on the taskbar and select Adjust Date/Time. 
Select the Additional Clocks tab and then determine whether you need one or two additional clocks; then select which names and time zones you require.
The next time you hover your mouse over your time, you will see the other time zones you have configured. This is a great tool for travelers who like to call home or business employees who have offices and clients in other zones. You could also set up gadgets in the Windows Sidebar to show you multiple times in different zones. You are welcome to choose whichever method you like best.

Control the View in the Notification Area. In the bottom-right corner of your screen are several notification icons, including the time, volume, networking, and power options. With additional applications that you install, this area can really grow out of control, but usually you can alter the icons that appear.  Read more on Removing Icons from the System Tray.
In XP you could set the notification bar to not show items that were inactive. In Vista you can still do that, but you can also hide the clock, volume, network, and power options. One reason you might decide to hide the clock is that you don’t need two clocks on your system. If you have the Windows Sidebar  running a clock, you don’t need the one at the bottom.
