A reader wants to add a world clock to her PC. “I would like to have a world time clock on my PC but not just download anything from the net as I am afraid of viruses etc..  I am using Windows 10.”

Great news! You don’t need to download anything. You already have a world clock on your PC. Let’s check out how to set it up.  Start by searching for Alarm & Clock in the search box. Click on the result.
