Pin World Clock Tile to Start Menu in Windows 10

Did you know that Windows 10 allows you to display the time from various cities and countries as a tile in the Start menu? There are no third party tools required. Everything can be done with apps you already have.

You need to start the Alarms & Clock app. It is a preinstalled Universal Windows Platform app. One of its features is a useful World Clock.
Open the Start menu and launch the application from there:alarms-and-clock

Once the app starts, click the World Clock glyph icon:

At the bottom, click the plus icon to add a new clock. The "Enter a location" text box will appear on the screen:

Type the desired city name whose time you would like to see and press Enter. For example, I will add Mumbai and New York:

Once this is done, you can pin the added locations to the Start menu in Windows 10. They become Live Tiles which show the actual time in the selected cities!

This is very useful for people who work with other people in different parts of the world or have friends there. Now the world time is just one click away from you. Credits for this tip go to Digital Citizen.

Tip: Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users can have this feature too in the Date and Calendar popup on the taskbar. From Date and Time Control Panel, you can add additional clocks for two time zones.
