I'm trying to get as much as I can into GPOs so that new machines are as effortless as possible once joining the domain.

One thing I always do on a new machine is add a UTC and US clock.

Additional clocks in Windows 7

What's the best way to roll this out? Doesn't need to be mandatory, preferences are fine.


According to someone who looks like he'd know...

There is no Group Policy can show additional clock directly. But you still have two options to achieve it below:

  • Registry Group Policy Preference (GPP)
  • Logon script Group Policy

For the detailed information, please refer to the following articles:

Registry Extension

Add Additional Clock via Registry

Use Startup, Shutdown, Logon, and Logoff Scripts

VBScript – Add additional clocks Vista and 7

Combine first and second links for GPP approach, or third and fourth for GPO with script.
