Desktop clock

I like to have a large desktop clock on my PC.

I use the Desktop Clock gadget for 8GadgetPack (which enables the use of Windows 8 gadgets to Windows 7, 8.1, 10 and 11).

But I can’t have one on my work laptop as they the company IT policy is to lock down installations to only their pre-approved list of applications.

But I can open a website…

And modern browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge allow the installation of webpages as apps.

So, I have written my own clock script that I can install as a Chrome or Edge app on my work laptop and resize the window to the bottom right of my screen. You can find the code on my GitHub.

It’s so pretty…
