Show Analog Clock in the Mac Menu Bar
Tired of the lengthy digital clock showing in the Mac OS X menu bar? You can go for a minimalist approach by setting the clock to display as an analog (that is, the old fashioned clocks with a face and hands), which will take up much less space and helps to clean up an otherwise cluttered menu bar.
Setting the Analog Clock as the new default is remarkably simple:
- Click on the current digital clock to pull down the menu, then choose “View as Analog”
The change is instant and looks pretty nice. You’ll find the hands are fairly small though, which could make it best for approximations rather than precise time telling purposes.
It looks nice with the black Mac OS X menu bar too.
