    Does anyone know any good clock software?

    I am running a technological challenge project at a large school next week and would like to have a large traditional clock (analogue) display on the screen we will be using. A bonus would be an additional digital timer counting down the 3 and a half hours to the end of the project - so students know how long they have left.

    Does anyone by any chance know of any good software programmes (preferably freeware) that will provide such a display? I seem to remember that Windows 3.1 used to include a clock of sorts!

    Many thanks.

    All Windows versions have clocks incorporated, but they run in the Taskbar.

    Two suggestions.

    http://crossgl-surface-clock.en.softonic.com/

    http://dclock.eu/desktop-timer.php

    W7 comes with a number of clock gadgets to choose from and W8 has clock and timer apps available in the Apps Store.


    Always check for bundled unwanted extras when downloading and installing any new software and be sure to decline them. Use custom install when itís available.

    Many thanks. The clock is excellent for what I wanted but I cannot get the desktop timer to run on my pc (W8.1) despite using the compatibility settings etc.

    Go to the W8.1 store and search for Beet Countdown. Its a simple full screen timer, so you will need separate monitors for the clock and the timer.
