The notification area clock (commonly known as the tray clock) user interface has changed in Windows 10, and old analog clock is gone. If you’re not very fond of the new clock and want the old analog version, you can revert back to the pre-Windows 10 style classic clock by employing a small registry edit.
Note: The registry value doesn’t work in Windows 10 version 1607 and higher.)
To bring back the old clock, start Regedit.exe and navigate to the following branch:
Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named
UseWin32TrayClockExperience, and set its data to
Exit the Registry Editor. This change works instantly, requiring no reboot.
