#Windows11 – App to show / hide the Clock πŸ•› in the System Tray

Hi !

Windows 11 is an amazing OS. However, there is one super important feature that I feel is missing:

Show or hide the clock πŸ•› in the system tray.

And, I’m not alone 😁. Hide the clock is mostly useful when you are streaming live, or recording a video. In those scenarios, the stamp of the current date/time doesn’t add any value.

Lucky us, my friend Jose Manuel Alarcon, has created a small open source app that allow us to hide / show the clock.


The app icon

Win11ClockToggler searches and hides the full notification area, or just the clock, in the Windows 11 taskbar.

  • Get the compiled app from the β€œReleases” section on the right. Download the latest version ZIP, and unzip it to any folder in your computer.
  • Double-click it to run it once , and the full notification area will disappear (this is the default option, which I find more useful, but you can change it. More about it later…)
  • _ Run it again to restore everything to its normal state._

You can download the compiled app or the source code from here.

And hey, please also check my friend blog in Spanish here.

Happy coding!
