Question

Desktop Clocks

I just bought a new laptop with Windows 7/64-bit. The clock in the lower right-hand corner is too small for me to see properly, so I am looking for a desktop clock to put in its place. On my old laptop (with Windows Vista) I had a desktop clock called "Free Desktop Clock" that was exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately, this program has compatibility issues with my Windows 7, so I can't use it. Can anyone here please recommend a desktop clock program that goes in the lower right-hand corner of the desktop screen?

Desktop Clock

In the start menu, choose "desktop gadget gallery", select 'clock', and slide it down to the lower right corner.

Gadgets

Google for "Win 7 gadgets" and apply what pleases you. If you have already disabled "gadgets" re-enable and that alone should pop-up a large clock.

Tried that

Unfortunately, dragging down a clock gadget from the Windows Live gallery doesn't work -- it goes behind the present clock there. Any other suggestions?

Clock

I, too, was used to the clock gadget in Vista. What I have done to my satisfaction is to leave the large clock in the upper right corner of the desktop. I can then click on the dektop icon on the taskbar and see the time then click it again and be back to where I was working.
