    Big clock?


    This clock occasionally appears. Don't know what I did. But I could use this.

    See the attachment.

    How can I do this on demand?

    Thank you for your help.

    It can only be done on command. Just swipe with mouse on PC, or finger on phone or tablet, up or down on the right side

    Hello mobile1,

    In addition, you can press the Windows + C keys to see the clock and Charms bar.
