    looking for free, clean, tiny clock display for desktop


    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 can put in the corner of the screen to have the time at a glance. Do you know of any?

    Hello Monty, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you can press the + C keys to show the Metro clock when you like from anywhere in Windows 8.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
