Atomic Clock overview

Version 3.3 released at 12/18/2021

If you are a perfectionist like me, or you love having the exact time, then the Atomic Clock Windows 11 and Windows 10 gadget is definitely for you. With this gadget, you always know the difference between your computer local time and actual world atomic time. Of course, you can correct your computer’s local time using the Window Time/Date applet or do it automatically if UAC settings allow you to perform this action. See guide page for more details.

From the “Settings“ area, you can change the time interval for getting the time from the atomic clock server, as well as change the time and date format. Moreover, you can customize colors for the interface (e.g. background, local time, synchronize, error messages).

The Atomic Clock gadget works on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

With our Atomic Clock gadget, you’re never late for anything again!
