Windows 10: Windows 10 new clock and calendar

    Windows 10 new clock and calendar

    I upgraded from Win7 to Win 10 and am not able to view the new clock/calendar.
    Tried the "UseWin32TrayClockExperience" hack but it still does not work with the entry set at "0". If I edit the entry to "1", I do see the win7 old clock. Just not able to get the Win 10 clock/calendar working.
    Any suggestions?

    Hello Donurs, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    See if the tutorial below for this may be able to help. It should be applied immediately when set in the registry.

    If you don't have the default new one back after setting to "0", then sign out and in or restart the computer to see if gets applied afterwards.

    As mentioned in my earlier post, if I edit the UseWin32TrayClockExperience entry to "1", I do see the win7 old clock.
    Setting it to "0" does nothing. All I get is the default windows error audio ("ding" sound).
    Restarting does not help either including full shutdown and power on.

    What action are you performing when you get the ding sound? Trying to open the clock?

    You could also see if deleting the UseWin32TrayClockExperience DWORD may work instead. It has the same effect as setting it to "0".

    Was the ding noise from what I posted above?

    In that case, use the Find and Find Next feature in regedit to search for all instances of the UseWin32TrayClockExperience DWORD, and delete any found. This way if you may have another instance overriding it, this should sort it for you.

    If it still doesn't sort it, then it looks like you may need to do a system restore using a restore point made before you changed it.

    Still no luck.
    Will research the issue in more detail and post a response with a solution hopefully!!

    I had the same problem and found a solution in the official forums. A Microsoft employee (?) there, Adrian Cosma, suggested the following:

    1. Run Regedit.exe
    2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones
    (note it's "Windows NT", not plain "Windows" in the key path above)
    3. Is there a subkey called "Armenian Standard Time"?
    4. If Yes: delete the "Armenian Standard Time" key (and only that key)
    5. Try launching the calendar again.

    This worked for me. On one machine this key was not present, and the calendar worked fine. On the other, this key was present, and deleting it allowed the calendar to work immediately.

    After trying to resolve this issue like ten different ways, I decided to wait on MS to hopefully come up with a solution.
    When I saw this post I decided to give it a try and it worked right away.
    Who would have thought that Armenian ST was the culprit!
    BTW - I suggest users export the specific key just in case they need to add it back to the registry if this does not solve the clock issue.
    Thanks Adrian

    Upgrading from an old O/S to a new one is always buggy IMO, in every experience I ever had. The best solution to do when you have problems like this even tinkering with the registry is, backup all files and programs and settings. Upgrade to new O/S. Clean install new O/S. Install drivers and slowly copy back the files and install the programs from scratch.
