For several years I've used a small application to change the clock display in the far right-hand end of the task bar (Windows XP, Free Desktop Clock) It allows me to display the date in HH:MM:SS format with date, month and day of week included.
The application will run in Win7 & Win8 with Classic Shell, but does not display. I think the Classic Shell taskbar takes priority. (always on top?)
It would be very helpful to have clock format choices in Classic Shell, or have some mechanism to allow the Free Desktop Clock application to overlay the taskbar.
Thank you for your attention,
