Add flair and maybe a little nostalgia with this customizable desktop clock

While the digital display in your system tray may tell you the time, the ClassicDesktopClock tool tells you the time with a little more finesse.

You can choose different themes for a clock overlay that features the style of the classic desktop clocks of the past. Celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the birth of Windows 98 SE with the attractive analog clock that used to display on your desktop back in the day. If you don't really remember Windows 98 but are really into retro, you'll love this portable little program, too.

You can customize the layout of each clock theme included in the program in terms of color, size, and transparency. Also, you can select or change the position it occupies on your desktop.

Setting up ClassicDesktopClock

Download, extract and launch the program to create your custom desktop clock. The simple interface provides sliders for Size and Transparency and a drop-down menu for your choice of clock. There are color swatches to select from and a checkbox for a Start with Windows option.

Once you have selected and customized your clock, it will display beside the interface. Move it to your chosen position on the desktop and check the Fixed at that position checkbox or allow it to be re-positioned if you prefer. The checkboxes at right, in addition to fixing the position of your clock, give you options for Always on Top, Second Hand and Disable.

Pros: This has several different simple clocks to choose from. I especially like the Windows - 12 Clock and the color customization options. You can resize your clock and move it to wherever you want on the desktop. You also have the ability to lock the clock into place and can have it remains always on top or not always on top.

Cons: The only downside is that there is no date function added to the clock.

Other Thoughts: I have vision problems and adjusting the size of this clock really helps me keep up with the time when I am using my computer.
