Annoyed with not being able to have a Windows taskbar clock on each of your monitors? This subtle skin is for you. (You will need Rainmeter)
By default Windows only allows the clock on your primary taskbar monitor if you have different sized monitors. When using fullscreen applications you cannot see the taskbar time on other monitors.
A simple clock which looks identical to the taskbar clock that appears on the Windows Taskbar.
Comes with two variants to fit either normal sized taskbars or small taskbars.
(Small taskbar is enabled by ticking "use small taskbar buttons" in taskbar properties).

HOW TO CHANGE THE TIME FORMAT:
- right click on the skin and click "Edit Skin".
- Under [MeasureClock] or [MeasureDate] you'll see "Format = "
- Go to HERE to see available format options.
- For an example to change to 24hour time change "Format = %#I:%M %p" to "Format = %#H:%M"

Thanks for this amazing taskbar clock BUT it has bug it does not show correct time. I use Win 10 and the clock is late by 30 mins for ex: If the actual time is 2:30PM then the taskbar clock shows: 2:00PM
Is there a way to fix it?
When my laptop is docked, the external monitor is primary, and I want the laptop screen to have the Rainmeter taskbar clock. When my laptop is not docked, it's primary by default and already has a clock, so I don't need the Rainmeter clock to display.
Next open the Rainmeter Config. You should see Taskbar Clock 2 on the list. You might have to click Refresh All at the bottom. Then load the clock under the new folder and drag it to the third screen.
I have three of them running.
Measure = Time
Format = %#I:%M %p
Change it to [MeasureClock]
Measure = Time
Format = %H:%M
And you're running 24hour time instead of AM/PM
