Hide the Computer Clock DisplayIf having a constant reminder of minutes and hours wasted hanging out in chat rooms, aimlessly surfing, or playing solitaire makes you feel guilty, hiding the computer's clock might help.
More seriously, if you wear a watch or have other clocks within sight of your computer chair, you may feel that the computer clock displayed in the Notification Area (System Tray) of the Windows XP taskbar is a little redundant. If it is not needed, all the clock does is use up precious taskbar real estate.
The good news is that you can hide the Notification Area clock display very easily:
The clock should now disappear from view.
To get the clock display back, reverse the procedure by placing a tick in the "Show the clock" checkbox as per step 2 above.
Naturally, the procedure outlined above simply removes the display of the clock. It does not disable the clock itself. The clock is an important component of your computer and it will continue to run in the background even if it is not displayed in the Notification Area.
