Modifying the system clock

P: n/a
Ok, call me a geek but.....

does anyone know if it is possible to change the look for the system
clock.... I want to be able to change the time to a hexadecimal and
binary format. I also don't mind if a whole new time area is created
next to the original system clock, but im not sure how to do this
either.

If anyone knows i would be most obliged.

Thank you

Dave

You can always just hide the clock and then create your own however you
want.

To hide the system clock, right click on the taskbar and choose
properties. You can hide it there.

Programmatically you can manipulate the following registry entries:

For just the current user:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
"HideClock"=dword:00000001

For all users:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\policies\Explorer
"HideClock"=dword:00000001
