Hey guys,

I need a clock for my secondary screen so when I play games I know what time it is. The default Win7 gadget clock is too small, would like something bigger. Also tried Rainmeter's clock but that bugger doesn't stay on the secondary screen instead it goes to my primary as soon as I go in game. Any suggestions?

Do you think it'd be possible to get a screensaver that is a clock, and have it run on the secondary screen?
There's got to be an application out there that can also do something along the lines.
Sorry, I don't have time to get on Google, I will later if you haven't found anything by then.

Screensavers take a lot of resources, don't really want to run such a resource hog app. along the games I play.

Thanks for the suggestion though Alex <3

I really do think that the best solution is an actual clock (you know - one that you nail to the wall), lol

I thought clocks only came on cell phones and computers. My grandfather used to tell us about a wearable clock that slid over your wrist.

But that's the most expensive solution, I'd have to buy a clock!

No, I have TS and xfire on the secondary screen and all I need now is the time. What I did to know what the time is I send someone a message over xfire and since I have timestamp enabled I was able to see the time on xfire. People were wondering what is that I'm posting as it makes no sense

I'm not sure it's flexible enough to make it look the way you want it to, but I have it on my second monitor on the upper left (I'm also using UltraMon) at 50% transparency and set to click-through mode so I can see a clock when I'm playing a game on my primary monitor.  I like the click-through feature, because that way it can stay on top but not interfere with any menus, etc. on other windows underneath it.

Tried ultramon yesterday and its not pretty. It doesn't extend the existing Windows 7 taskbar but adds another one to the secondary screen but that one looks as it was made in the 80s.

Smuder will try your link in a bit

There will probably be a newer version of ultramon sometime soon; it works fine for Vista at the moment.

the 1st link has no workable download links


the clock in the 2nd link would be perfect https://www.appsapps.info/screenshots/DClock2.jpg but I cannot move it to secondary screen, only works on the primary

What about unlocking the taskbar & moving it across to your 2nd screen?

You can try turning on the in-game clock for xfire. I know it's not as pretty as having it on a second monitor, but it'll do the job.

or just open XFire in game and the time is displayed top-right...

Have you tried deselecting "stay on screen" for your clock app on rainmeter?

I have FM, tried every possible combo. The interesting part is it stays on the secondary when I launch Brothers in Arms but not when BF2 is launched.

Yeah BF2 gets more pissed than other games about forcing everything on the screen to go to its rez, like my AIM buddy list, but that fixed the problem for me and my rainmeter clock. Not using two screens though.
