Having been using the Windows 10 Preview, it was nice to have it updated on Friday and to get the latest version Build 9926.
One of the items that you won’t see in this version by default is the new calendar and clock widget. It has been updated and looks really nice with the rest of the interface.
If you would like to enable this feature in the latest build of Windows 10 it is fairly straightforward to do as it is a simple registry tweak. One thing to note is that if you don’t have experience working with the registry it can break things in how Windows operates.
- Open Regedit.exe
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell
- Right click and select New – > DWORD (32-bit) and call it UseWin32TrayClockExperience with no spaces, exactly as written.
- Click on the clock in the system tray
As you can see if you completed the above steps it is a nice looking widget that fits in with the rest of new stuff that Windows is bringing to the table.
