    The title is a little misleading… the system tray would be that bottom right area with the icons and the one clock, and this procedure only adds another clock when you move your mouse over it, it doesn’t constantly display two clocks.
    The reason I’m saying all this is because I was looking for a way to always show two clocks on google, and your site turned up as one of the first results.

    1. Rich says:

      Agreed. The distinction between “on” and “in” is subtle and can be misleading.

      Usually when something is “on” something, you expect to see it. When it’s “in” something, you usually have to open it or enter that something.
