I'm using T-Clock version 5.4.1.1 with Windows 11, 22635.2700, also with version 22000. Have you tried that?

It all depends on the tool you use to bring classic taskbar.
I'm running recent 23H2 Windows build and just upgraded my StartAllBack from 3.6.16 to 3.7 beta and the T-Clock functionality is gone. Since it used to work before, I tend to believe it's not the Windows issue, but the third party tool issue.

If you're looking for a replacement you may give a try to ElevenClock - I personally don't like it as it's not modifying the tray clock, instead it creates a non-transparent window for its clock in the place where the standard tray clock is. In my case DPI and taskbar customizations make it difficult to use, but I like the tool as such.

I tend to believe it's not the Windows issue, but the third party tool issue.
I tend to believe it's the third party tool finally adapting to the new Windows taskbar in stead of using the old (still built in) taskbar of Windows 10. And Windows 11 taskbar does not accept T-Clock anymore (which I think is a pity).

In this topic the developer has responded to a question about T-Clock:
I don't think T-Clock has a chance.

So I had to go to ElevenClock as well, but having some problems fitting the clock, which in my system is 14 pts height.
But the result is ok:
001409.jpg

Hidden behind the clock are the network symbol and the Windows clock:
001410.jpg

And for the calendar I use a shortcut (on my desktop) to the calendar of T-Clock, which is located here:
C:\Program Files Portable\T-Clock\misc\XPCalendar.exe
Where "Program Files Portable" is a special folder I created for portable programs.
To change the settings of the calendar I have made a shortcut in my startmenu like this:
"C:\Program Files Portable\T-Clock\Clock64.exe" /prop
Of course you don't need to start T-Clock anymore at system startup, because the clock is not viewable.

To have an easy way for alarms at certain times or certain days, I use FreeAlarmClock.
Which is fully free if you use the basic functions of the program and that is ok for me.

FreeAlarmClock can do more than the built in Alarms of T-Clock, beacause it can manage alarms every moth or year as well (where T-Clock only can manage once per week as maximum, not a certain date in future). The only disadvantage is the very big warning window, but I got used to it.

PS. To get the ElevenClock in the right size and position, I had to fiddle around with its settings and found these to fit best (for small icons on the taskbar and 125% screen):
001412.jpg

It's in Dutch, but the positions in the settings window of ElevenClock are the same.
They are to be found under "Clock position and size".

Hoi Kees!
I'm using elevenclock as well but it's covering up some icons in the system tray like the battery/power and sound icon.
This is very inconvenient.
Did you find a way to solve this?

Because I don't use ElevenClock anymore, I cannot tell you how to solve this.

Since StartAllBack 3.7RC, there is a possibility to change the clock and besides that, it allowes to use T-Clock again.
So I am using T-Clock (version 2.4.4-492) again and deinstalled ElevenClock.
I did that 2023 November 21, so quite soon after I wrote my answer #5.
And with that utility you don't have the problem that the clock is covering other icons in the system tray.

But StartAllBack you'll have to pay for after a testperiod. Not much just a few dollars (the prize is $5 for a licence, $9 for 2, $12 for 3 licences).

How did you get Tclock to work? I have startallback and windows 11 build 26085.1.
I only installed T-Clock version 2.4.4-492 (v2.4.4 release candidate), which you can download from here:

That does function in combination with all StartAllBack versions after 3.7RC

The version of Windows 11 that you have reported to be using seems to be an Insider version.
Not all functions of StartAllBack will work with Insider versions (as I once read on the @Tihiy's site).
And because I dont use any Insider Windows version, I can't tell you what the reason is it does not work on your system.

@Kees
Thank you for the response. I figured it might be related to the insider version.
I do have Tclock working on a system with the current released version. I was hoping that a solution could be found for what I assume will eventually become the next released build.

My experience until now is that the developer of StartAllBack will have solutions for problems his app has with newer Windows versions, at the time those versions are available for official update. But he needs time to do that and will never garantee that his app will fully function on an insider version.

So I would suggest to be patient...

Use the horizontal and vertical positions to get the clock in the position you want and you're done.

Use the horizontal and vertical positions to get the clock in the position you want and you're done.
Even if you move that clock (of ElevenClock) anywhere in the system tray area, it will always be over some other icons. That's how ElevenClock functions.

As you hopefully have seen, the question of @Little_Ghost was three month back and never reacted anymore here! He even did not log on anymore after he wrote his post #6!

Since then al lot has changed in Windows 11. For me that means that already for some time I am back to ElevenClock for the clock panel. I myself have situated that clock over the cpmbined network / speaker icons that are situated in the right corner of the system tray after disablling the Windows clock to be displayed (under the time settings).

That's all I'd like to write about it, because you were just reopening an old topic.
