    As far as I know the clock only pops up in Start when you go to the Charms bar. So, as long as you don't activate the Charms bar you shouldn't see the clock. Perhaps don't scroll to quick to the right with your mouse? The screen edges contains commands in Windows 8, which is a completely new feature.

    Hope this will be helpfull.

    You're welcome. Perhaps your requested option will become available in the near future? ==> email Microsoft and ask them?
