Hi
I have 2 computers, both on win xp one on home the other on Professional. What I want to know and how if so is if you can add the seconds to the clock in the tray with the standard clock?

Thanks

Hi bourkie.
Just click and drag your cursor over the seconds in the clock to highlight.
Change the seconds with your keyboard.

I don't want to change the time, in the tray the clock only shows hours : minutes am/pm, I want to know if it is possible with the clock in windows for it to show hours : minutes : seconds am/pm

I spent an hour searching for this, and have reached 2 conclusions:
1) It's only possible with a 3rd party app
2) It will significantly affect the performance of your system because explorer.exe will need to redraw everything with each tick of the clock.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
