If you enjoyed the old analog-style clock from Windows 8 and Windows 7, then you can use a very simple registry change to replace the new digital-style clock in Windows 10 for the old clock. This guide will walk you through the steps to bring back the classic Clock experience to Windows 10.

Bring back the classic Clock experience

There you have it. Now, click the time on the system tray and you should see the classic Clock back in Windows 10.

In the case you want to revert to the new Clock experience, simply follow the same instructions mentioned above, but instead of creating a new entry, you’ll need to select the UseWin32TrayClockExperience DWORD, and press Delete.
