The default Windows 11 date and time only allows up to two additional time zone clocks. To add more than 3 clocks (including the main clock), you need to use a different app.

Fortunately, there is a built-in Windows app that is able to show as many time zone clocks as you want – the Alarms & Clock app. Thus, you don’t need to install any third party app just to view clocks from different time zone.

You can search for and open Alarms & Clock app via the Start menu or Search. Alternatively, to open the app quickly next time, you can pin the app to your taskbar by right-clicking the Alarms & Clock app from the search result and select Pin to taskbar.
