    It could have it in the Charms Bar ....either above the search or below the setting.
    Sure it will look better and less obstructive.

    Ok...back to what you're looking for.....

    I am presuming you are using Windows 8 RTM (X64)

    The file to edit is C:\Windows\system32\twinui.dll

    Please check that you have the product version of 6.2.9200.16604 by right click.. under Detail Tab

    Replace the mod twinui.dll (download link below)...lock out and in for it to take effect.

    The date&time should be out of sight.

    So I was on the right track then ? I was going to pull it apart this weekend but I will give your version a bash , wow thats saved me a few hours digging away at it !

    Just out of curiosity what lines in ResHacker did you edit please ? I'd love to make the background of the charms bar fully transparent as well

    Will get back here later with a screen ( and a big happy smile as well lol) Its dinner time for me , off to stuff my face with pork chops lol.

    Nice Sean6027....great to see its working for you.

    MS is not going to make life easy for us to hack their system files nowadays. MS push out updates faster
    than we hack it. Once the system is updated we are back to square one. The line to edit will be all

    ResHacker can't get this job done... you need Hex Editing....
    As for the transparency background.. same need Hex Editing...

    Now come Windows 8.1 Preview....guess we have to look into the line to edit again...

    I will let you know how it's done once MS has finalize Windows 8.1.

    Pork Chops...that's one of my favorite

    I did have a good look at it , and yeah its Hex ! Err..... Hex , yeah I'm lost completely with that. One thing I have learnt is not to mess with it

    Yup , 8,1 changes the game , I was going to ask someone to up the .dll and check the version numbers , to see if they have changed. Maybe give it a go on a VM and try it myself ?

    Thanks for coming back , and hey you like pork chops ? grab yourself a hottie and dinners at 8 ! Me and you can chat .dll hacking and the ladies can chat about why they love geeks hahaha.

    Any way to get this to work on 8.1? Charmbarcustomzier does not change anything when pressing apply. Edit UI file manually gives a lot of symbols I can't understand, did a CTRL + F for clock but didn't find anything.

    Want the clock not to show. It stresses me out.

    version of twinui.dll is 6.3.9600.17415
