12Ghosts ShowTime replaces Windows taskbar clock and displays date/time in a movable Window.

Installation of ShowTime was fine on my Windows 2000 machine. But I could not understand use of "custom" option available early in the setup process, like, What it means to select ghosts from a list? I could see only one ghost (ShowTime).

The application executed fine and my system tray clock was replaced by ShowTime clock. It takes up larger space to show time and date in detailed format. Many formats are available along with many color schemes. Alarms can be quite useful as default windows clock lacks this feature. Moon's current position is also displayed in a flying window along with current time and date. You can save ShowTime application settings in a file (.12g) and can move it anywhere to assure same settings on other machines.

Users should read Resource efficiency section in the help file first if they have any queries regarding application performance. But help contains information for all of the company's products. I had to dig in specifically for ShowTime to get what I needed. Also context sensitive help doesn't work for all controls.

User Friendly
