    Old clock? Seriously?
    MS trying to get things similar in all parts of OS, and here you go, brought back bones of W7 again.

    A PC is a tool, meant to serve the user. If the user likes more the old Win32 applet why he should use the idiotic metroish new thing?

    Functionality and ergonomics first, then one can think to look and trends.

    Something that MS doesn't understand lately, and seems you don't understand it either

    Exactly, I sometimes use a wrench (spammer?) as a hammer even though I just bought a new hammer. Use what you like and be happy.

    AFAICT, this is technical thread, it's not to discuss the principle or the reason

    There's good reasons for preferring the newer clock (like the integration with the Calendar app) and then there's "you're ruining MS' vision, qwerty12, you POS!". :/

    My laptop's screen is small. Unlike the devices Microsoft seem to be targeting these days, it has no touch screen, so I don't need a clock that's 4x the size. Also, I'm sure the old clock displays a bit faster - even though the new one has the advantage by having an instance of its COM object retained in Explorer's memory.

    (And you'll be pleased to know I'm hoping my contingency of having timedate.cpl and timedate.cpl.mui from 14393 present in the OldClock folder continues to work when MS really do get rid of the old clock for real.)

    (And, please, people, feel free to call me to call me a certain four-letter expletive because one of the things on here messed up your system and you need help fixing it, you think the small programs are inherently dangerous etc. but spare me from having this become another thread where everyone yet again argues MS' design decisions. If you want to proselytise for every decision MS makes, and receive a pat on the back for it, head for the /r/windows10 subreddit..)
