    Clock?


    Anyone know how to put a clock on the start screen? Either as a metro tile of a part of the wallpaper. Seems strange to have to go to the desktop or lock the computer to see what time it is!

    It's not possible YET. You can open the charms bar to see the time anyway without going back to the desktop or locking your computer.

    I know, how dumb is this, hopefully someone writes and app that is simply nothing but a clock, should be easy to do

    I would also like an active clock tile on my start menu. I'm sure someone will submit something as simple as that to the app store pretty early on. Just a matter of time.

    Stranger still, I don't have a clock on my charms bar!

    Hover over the icons on the charms bar.

    OK, that worked. It will be nice to get a live tile on the metro start page though.

    Thanks!

    I would like a toggle switch/feature for the clock so it can be on screen on the desktop if one wants, rather than having to look for it every time you want to find out the time.

    I miss that too.
    And charge of my notebook battery.
    And if wireless is connected.

    One live tile app with all that information - that would be great.
