How to add a multifunction clock to your Desktop

Tuesday, 3 January 2012 0 comments
Windows 7 includes some useful utilities like a calculator and the snipping tool. What it lacks, however, is an alarm clock and a stop watch.
If you use the Google Chrome browser, here's how you can add a multifunction clock to your desktop:
First, install the this , from the Chrome Web Store.
Next, click on the Clock app from your list of Chrome apps to launch it. The clock will launch into the time and date tab first. The other tabs are for world clock, alarm, timer, and stop watch.

Windows users who want to launch it from the taskbar, can pin it there. Just right-click on the Clock app from your Chrome app list, then select "Create shortcut." Make sure that "Pin to Taskbar" is checked then click the "Create" button.

That's it. Now you've got cool little multifunction clock on your desktop that works even when you're offline.
