Can clock font size be changed? Solved

    Can clock font size be changed?

    My Windows 10 taskbar clock font is too small. I recently switched to a 4K monitor. Everything else responded to a 175% scale setting, but not the clock. If no readily available setting, can it be done in the Registry?

    Many thanks for that. I used Stoic Joker's T-Clock until the Anniversary Update, but wasn't aware somebody had fixed it. Settings for time format, font and color were still hiding in my system, so the old familiar look popped up as soon as I started the new app. :) I've marked this solved, although I still think MS should provide a clear way of altering the Windows clock appearance.

    I like the Atomic Alarm Clock but it is not free after the 60 day trial period.

    Thanks for the Atomic Alarm Clock suggestion, but I really like T-Clock. It replaces the Windows clock instead of adding another clock and appears in the same place. I can use any font and color and it's free.

    Custom Fonts?

    Can you use any fonts on those apps? John

    Here is a wild thought, a silly suggestion - how about.. you don't refresh a two year old thread, and go and find out for yourself?

    To answer your question, I think so. It allows you to pick a font, so as long as it is installed on your system, you should be able to pick it.

    As for Atomic Alarm Clock, sadly, no. There are only pre-made clocks (that can still be somewhat customized)

    If you change your system font to one from the Store, (Verdana Pro is an excellent one), the Taskbar Clock enhances quite nicely...
