Analog clock display on Mac OS X.6.4 Question
September 4, 2011 7:53 PM   Subscribe

Did Apple remove the floating analog clock feature in OSX.6?

I want my computer's clock to display as an analog floating window. I can have it as analog in the toolbar, but that is hard to see. I went into preferences, but there is no "display as window" box to check like I think I remember there being. Did they change this or am I missing something?
I have an iMac running OS X.6.4
Am I going to have to forgo the friendly little guy I have had on my desktop since 1992? That would make me kind of sad.

It appears that this feature was removed in 10.5, but you can get it back if you happen to still have a computer running Tiger. You could also try Amnesty widget browser to display arbitrary dashboard widgets (yeah yeah I know) in floating form on your desktop.

I am not on a good connection (it wavers and is really slow) to really browse, so couldn't google it myself. Thanks!
I have the old hard drive from my OS X.3.9 so I will try that with the instructions and see what happens.

Note also that it is Power PC application. It will run under Rosetta in 10.6 but if/when you upgrade to 10.7, it won't be runnable.
