Window 10’s new Calendar and Clock

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.

Welcome to Learn MS NET

Welcome to Learn MS NET!

It has been a few years since I used this domain to do blogging about .NET.  With the introduction of ASP.NET 5 and the new Visual Studio, I have decided to start doing some more writing and to provide some information to the community.

I’m currently using wordpress as an experiment to see how it works. I debated on using other blog engines but at this time chose wordpress.

I’ve never really used it as a blog engine but thought I would give it a try.  There are many different plugins available and i’m intrigued to see what I can do with this.

My first blog post about .NET will follow in the next couple of days.

Learning .NET along the way!
