DesktopClock3D is a free clock for your Windows desktop that’s similar to DesktopDigitalClock and Free Desktop Clock. It places a rotating three-dimensional clock with the time and date on your screen, while you can decide if it should always be on top. It also lets you move it around to a desired location.
The interface is easy to use, and there are some customisation options. For instance, you can change the font, style and colour. There are known issues of antivirus programs picking it up as a threat, but it’s a false positive and is safe to use.
3D clock on your desktop
When you install and run DesktopClock3D, you’ll see a floating clock on your screen that slowly turns around on an invisible axis. The interface has a sliding bar that changes the speed at which it spins. There are also options for what information you’d like to see and which parts rotate.
Changing the appearance
You don’t need to settle for the default settings that you find after the initial installation. The transparency ranges from 0% to 100%, making it more invisible the higher you go. There are also font settings you can alter, such as colour, type, emphasis and alignment.
By default, the DesktopClock3D appears on the top centre of the screen. When you open the interface, there are small arrow icons to click which will move it around until you find a spot that suits you. There’s also a button for quickly placing it in the centre of the desktop.
Digital or analogue
You’ll start with a digital clock that shows the time and date as indicated by the internal system clock. However, you can change it to analogue with Roman numerals. There are also other designs you can choose that changes how each section rotates or eliminates the date.
See the time on your desktop
DesktopClock3D is a basic clock for your desktop that places the time and date in clear view. You can change many of the settings with an interface that’s easy to use with a few functions. If you don’t want to use it anymore, you can just exit the program.
