Editors' Review


Desktop Tray Clock is a highly customizable, feature-rich clock that takes the place of the standard Windows clock on your system tray, but it lacks a help file.

From its main settings window, the program offers several options that let you adjust the appearance by selecting from a number of skins, the date and the hour format, and the time zone. You can create multiple alarms with simple messages, or play a program-default sound file or your own favorite MP3, and let the alarm run once, repeatedly, or at any interval you like. Also, the program can automatically open a file or a program, and perform shutdown operations when the alarm goes off. It even has a snooze feature. Desktop Tray Clock can sync your drifted time with a number of online atomic servers and adjust it as often as every hour. The program lacks a help file, though that doesn't have a major effect since we find it very easy to use. Installation from the ZIP file is easy enough, and any user who is looking for a featured-filled clock application will find this program more than sufficient.

"Good while it worked"

It worked fine for me when using Vista. I had it customised exactly how I wanted it to be and as a bonus, it synched my PC clock as well.


It won't work with Windows 7 and hasn't been updated for ages, so I guess I wasted my money on this. No reply from support about this either.

It never ran successfully, so I wouldn't know!


Crashed explorer.exe on startup, wouldn't die itself. Had to kill via taskmanager.


Not for Vista, that's for sure!
