The taskbar in Windows 11, although it looks identical to the one in Windows 10, it has been developed from scratch. Because of this reason, it lacks many of the classic features present in the earlier versions of the Windows operating system.
One of the many missing features is the date and clock on the secondary display. That is, when you have attached more than one monitor to your Windows 11 PC and using the second display as the extended display, the taskbar on the second display does not display the date and clock. This is an evident omission, and many users are not happy with it.
The team behind Windows 11 might add the ability to display the date and clock on all monitors in a future Windows 11 release, but for now, there is no option to display the date and clock on display other than the primary one.
Luckily, a developer has come up with a workaround software that adds date and clock to the taskbar on all screens.
According to the notes, ElevenClock supports all the Windows 11 locales and time formats. It only appears on all the monitors, except the primary one. It supports the dark and light system modes. It behaves like the default system clock, and you can even click the icon to open Notification Center. It supports correct alignment when using different DPI settings. You can show seconds, weekdays, and more.
