Windows 7: Clock on the desktop

Clock on the desktop

Is there any way to get a small digital clock, like the one in the taskbar appearing on the desktop?

IF you are thinking why, it's because i'm trying to use rocket dock, then hide my taskbar. But digital clock docklets are rubbish! So I'd rather have it in the corner of my dekstop instead.

EDIT: Don't worry, found a decent digital clock docklet here:

The screenshot doesn't really do it justice, it looks much better when you install it.

Hi FreddyC,

I personally use the "Sphere Timer" Desktop gadget available on the M$ gadget gallery on the desktop, in both Vista and Windows 7 and find this quite inoffensive and also more powerful than the built in clock.

If you are using a dock then this should have available a suitable digital display for placing on the dock itself.

If you are still on XP as per your specs Have a look at either thr Yahoo or Google desktop gadgets as these both contain clock gadgets
