Personalizing the way your computer looks starts with changing the wallpaper and screensaver. Windows 8 Clock Screensaver is an app that brings the current time and date to your screen.
Thus, whenever the computer turns idle, the time is viewable from any corner of the room.
Unlike other screensavers, this program comes with an extensive customization menu. Thus, any of the preset themes are applicable with only a click of a button, but all the details can also be adjusted manually.
The themes are accessible through a drop-down menu. Once an item is selected, all the settings are displayed in the interface. However, you can modify all the details of this screensaver, such as the color of the font, the border and the background. Also, the clock’s position can be adjusted to any of the corners or the center of the screen.
A couple of sliders are the instruments that you can use to adjust the background and clock area opacity.
Windows 8 Clock Screensaver also comes with the ability to adjust the time to either a 12-hour or 24-hour format. An alarm is available, as well. This can be scheduled to ring daily, or only on certain days. Additionally, the font color can change once the alarm starts and an alarm icon can be displayed on the screensaver.
The app comes with a preset alarm sound, but you can use any MP3, WAV, MIDI or WMA files.
The bottom line is that Windows 8 Clock Screensaver is a nice-looking tool that is easy to install and customize. Inexperienced users should have no problems figuring out how to work with this app.
