Binary Clock overview

Version 2.9 released at 02/18/2020

Real system programmers, computer geeks or science lovers are sure to like the Binary Clock Windows 10 gadget. Many gadgets show time on your desktop, but Binary Clock has a unique way of showing the time, as it does away with regular decimal digits and displays the time using the binary number system.

The-tell tale sign of a true software developer is the ability to read a binary clock. If you want to achieve such an “esteemed” status, you must learn to read numbers in binary notation. It is not as difficult as you might expect, but probably still take a while before you get the hang of things. To read the clock, you simply have to figure out the binary number represented by each column. If you are s novice in binary, please check the “Show binary digit” box in settings. This will help you at the initial stage, until you get used to it. In the future, you can uncheck this box.

You have the ability to change a number of settings in the gadget’s settings menu. You will be able to change the colors of the clock to suit your preferences. The date and time format can also be edited. Moreover, you will hide some elements of the interface. Gadget works on both 64-bit and 32-bit systems, the amount of resources it needs is very low.

We understand there may not be too many people out there who are familiar enough with binary to rely on this gadget, but the few who are should be very pleased with what Binary Clock has to offer. For others, we can say that it is never too late to learn. If you understand this, try our Binary Uptime gadget too.
