Clock options in Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1

If you’re looking to add a clock to your Start screen or desktop, there are a variety of clocks, timers, and alarm apps available in the Windows Store.

If you want to see the time, swipe in from the right edge of the screen. Or, if you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then move the mouse pointer up.
