Win7 Win 10, Win 8.1

Yeah that is the only drawback of it. I have it configured to run a calander exe when clicking.

It is possible to change the font size of the system tray clock BUT its not easy. It involves editing the systems in the .msstyle file.

I was able to do it as I have already purchased a program called Vista Style Builder

To get that 3 line display like mine, use this in the format options

h:nn:ss tt\n dddd \n mmm dd yyyy
I d/l the file from the link you gave and clciked on the "exe" file after unzupping. Nothing happened. Checking Task Manager I find the executable is running but the default Win 7 clock is still there with nothing else. Running as Admin makes no difference.

I am using Win 7 RC 7100 64 bit. Wonder if it is the 64 bit that is screwing it up?

Same problem here. None of these system tray clocks seem to work in Win7x64.

I've been using something similar ever since Win95 called TClockEx. Last updated in 2000, but I use it now in Win Vista Ultimate 32-bit. Can't live without it, has a click-calendar as well. The memory variable on it (for displaying) is limited to 2GB, but I still use it to show if I'm really dipping into the memory.

Really hoping I can use it with Win7, but I'm also going 64-bit so I have no idea if it will even run.

Well, you could right click an empty spot on the desktop, select "Personalize", select "Display" from the left side of the dialog, and check "Smaller - 100%(default)". The problem there is, everythng else on the desktop will resize also.

Windows 7

Hi there, my OP is Windows 7/64, I sure like it. I had XP before, and got used to the "Clock tray skins" what I missing a lot. Would it be possible to have something similar task tray clock other than what Win7 offers. Would appreciate any help or direction to my problem.

Try "Zone Tick", it works flawlessly with Windows 7 x64 and is extremely customizable with multiple clocks, alarms etc.
