TClockEx is a simple and old system clock that is intended to replace the clock that comes with Windows. Once installed, the clock appears in your system tray just like the Windows clock and displays the time and day of the week in the format you want. You can also select text and background color and customize the font.
Even so, the clock is not really attractive and looks rather old. The clock also comes with a calendar that can be moved all around the desktop and it is pretty customizable. However, just like the clock, it isn't really attractive nor useful, since it lacks many other important features like reminders or alarms that could stand for a difference with the Windows clock, and would make the program worth a try. The only difference I found is the ability to copy the time and date of the clock to be used on another programs, but it is not a big deal since many text processor applications, like Word, come with this option.
All in all, TClockEx is a simple and old clock intended for old operating systems that certainly doesn't deserve a try unless you use a very old computer.

Publisher's description

TClockEx enhances the standard Windows taskbar clock, adding the ability to display the date, time and lots of other information in any format you like. TClockEx is highly customizable, from the format to the font and colour, and even the tooltip information. Many people have wondered why this wasn't built into the standard clock to begin with.

I originally wrote TClockEx out of frustration with not being able to see the date easily. Since the first release I have added new features after encouragement and requests from people with similar feelings. I've seen other programs try to address the date issue by putting little windows in the corners of the screen, by changing the title bar of the active window, and so on. Those ideas didn't really appeal to me because they became intrusive and took up valuable screen space, or just got in the way. Some programs even try to use a series of icons in the tray to display the date graphically.

    It will not load on my Windows 7 64-bit PC. Which is a pity as I like it so much.

    "Did you know if you make the Windows XP task bar double-height, the standard clock panel also shows the date?"
    Yes, but if you don't wanna drag the taskbar and waste space, this is for you lol
    Good little addon, fully adjustable.
