The following .reg file (key):

Code

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"ShowSecondsInSystemClock"=dword:00000001


Adds a seconds counter to the windows taskbar clock.

Can this registry key be carried over and used for DF taskbar clocks too please?

To add seconds to the DisplayFusion taskbar clock try this:
Right click on a DF taskbar and select Settings.
At the bottom of the settings window click on Advanced Settings.
Scroll down to Clock Text and double click on it.
In the Window that opens type HH mm ss then OK your way out of it.
If the time is cut off then just above the Clock Text is Clock Size (Taskbar #1) double click on that and start with a value of 125 and either go up or down depending on the space you need.
If you have more than two screens then you would need to add the same value to (Taskbar #2) etc.

Restart DisplayFusion.

Thanks,

That worked - ended up using:

HH:mm:ss\ndd/MM/yyyy to match the windows clock.

Also it updated instantly - didn't need to restart DF.

Although it looks like the refresh rate is possibly slow on the DF clock as it updates about half a second after the windows clock.

Hello,

how can I additionally display the name of the day of the week?

Is there also a possibility to display the week number?

And how can I display the clock in the second taskbar of the second half of the screen?
I have an ultra wide curved monitor that I have divided into two areas.
Thanks :)

I'm not sure if you can display week number, but should be able to display day of the week.

I believe this uses c# format strings:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/base-types/custom-date-and-time-format-strings

Meaning, you can use "ddd" (short) or "dddd" (long) day of week.

If you have split the screen then you should be able to add clock to any one of the task bars (right click - multi monitor task bar).

On my personal set up, I have left screen with normal taskbar and clock.

On my right screen I have that split - both with clocks visible.

Thank you

I now use this format HH:mm:ss\nddd dd/MM/yy.
There seems to be no solution to display the week number.

The setting where I activate the clock for the second taskbar I have not yet found in DF.

This post will explain week numbers: https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/show-only-date-not-time/?ID=84cd0946-8d09-43d6-a4cd-8049ff468bc7
Its easy to do but not knowing your region, I cannot post the correct code.

Here is a link to the help file explaining how to do it and the week number codes:

The region is Germany.

Per try an error I found out that W04, W05 and W06 show the correct week number. But which of the three settings is correct for Germany and why?

I have obviously not yet understood the instructions. Very embarrassing. :|

Well I think (you know better) that the German week starts on a Monday as does the Swedish week inwhich case W11 should work. As stated in the FAQ its to do with which day your week starts on and which is the first week of the year in your country.
