    remove tiny copies of all desktop icons on bottom line?

I like to autohide the taskbar on the desktop, and perhaps I'm very lazy but I'm looking for a tiny clock app that will display the time on the desktop without me having to head on over to the taskbar. Ideally no clockface graphics or anything like that, just a small digital readout of the time I...

Touch Keyboard Tiny Graphic at the bottom of the screen.
Greetings. I have a Viliv X70s sitting around so I thought I'd throw Windows 8 on to see what happens. It is doing great and I'm enjoying exploring Windows 8 with it. The onscreen keyboard works like a charm. In some ways it's running better than it did with Windows 7. But the Touch...
