There is a clock on Windows 10’s taskbar, but I find it really small on my large 27” full HD monitor. So, I was looking for a good desktop clock for Windows 10. After searching for close to a week, I finally got what I was looking for.
Before I tell you about this new desktop clock for Windows 10, let me tell you little about desktop gadgets and why I didn’t use desktop gadgets to get a better clock.
As you likely know, desktop gadgets or desktop widgets are officially not part of Windows 10. Microsoft has dropped desktop gadgets from Windows 10 for security reasons, and there is no built-in alternative to desktop gadgets in Windows 10 (we may get one in future when Microsoft decides to add live desktop tiles). That said, you can always get desktop gadgets feature in Windows 10 by installing desktop gadgets for Windows 10, but I didn’t want to compromise on security.
Coming back to the new desktop clock that we are going to share with you, it’s not a free program to start with. However, it can be bought for just $1 from Windows Store. You can even try it before buying it. The new desktop gadget or widget is called Sense Desktop.
Sense Desktop is a Windows Store app designed to help you place an awesome looking clock on your desktop. As the name says, the clock is inspired by the HTC Sense UI. If you remember, there was a free HTC Sense gadget clock out there for Windows 7 as well.
The Sense Desktop gadget is simply cool. In addition to the time, it also shows date and weather information with animations. You can obviously select or change the location and animations.
The clock is moveable and can be placed anywhere on the desktop.
You can choose the time zone, time display format (12 or 24-hour), widget size, and widget opacity. There is an option to show temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Right-click on it and then click open Settings to see all available settings.
The Sense Desktop clock is the best looking and functional clock out there for Windows 10 desktop. If you are looking for a desktop clock, try it out right away.
Lastly, this is NOT a paid review of the clock. I liked it, so thought of sharing this beautiful desktop clock for Windows 10.
