Anyone know of a fix for this error as I want to use a 3rd party taskbar clock app which worked fine in win10. I know MS does not want tampering with the taskbar, but a lot of fixes are appearing at the moment and I wonder if anyone has seen anything related to it. Thanks

I tried to use a third party taskbar clock and it doesn't work. MS has changed the access to it.
I just tried it again and this is the error I get from Atomic Alarm Clock

You're so right Jeff. That is the one I use and get the same error message, I believe most 3rd party apps give the same error. I have used Atomic Alarm Clock for years and years and hope someone finds a fix.

I was the original poster back in October. I also use EP and have done for many, many months, in fact pretty much since the start. The point of the post was to run my taskbar clock app on a pc without EP and to find out why trayclockwclass was not found .

BTW welcome to the forum. in my opinion the way W11 is developing it will soon be as good as win10 was when Win11 first came out and many of MS's changes are just things we had in Win 10

I also just installed that clock on my recently acquired laptop, used it for years, have that same "TrayClockWclass not found" error. It does seems to do most the other stuff if you click the tray icon, it just won't load and show the time on the task bar.

What is this ExplorerPatcher? And does it fix the issue, or cause something else to change?

ExplorerPatcher makes the taskbar like windows 10 and many other features, like weather on the taskbar, pinning options etc. context menus, it is easy to setup by r click on taskbar once installed and selecting properties. worth a look as it can easily be uninstalled. link is :

OK, But do you know if it will let Atomic Clock work on 11 than? I just moved the taskbar icons to the far left on my 11 as it is so it looks like 10 now.

Yes it does and it works just fine @Wild Bill
Attached image shows mine, far left button in the start button using OpenShell for the "old" style start menu. If you want the win11 start menu hold down left shift and click the start button, so you can have both and as you can see Atomic clock is on the far right. I hope this was useful to you.

OK I installed it, and it does show the clock GUI now, I wonder why it also seems to show the usual windows clock just in front of the atomic clock? It has the date, time, and says, clock1 It's not a big deal, but just doesn't need to be there.

BTW, how would you switch between these settings, or is that possible, I haven't seen a way to do that? Does this Explorer Patch need to be uninstalled altogether?

I have another little program that I always liked in my tray, it's called DiskLED, it's a little light that shows that showed the drive functioning, like the old disk light that used to be part of the computers. On W10P it does still work, but you have to manually start it, and some programs stop it functioning, and you have to restart it, on 11 it doesn't work at all. I'm thinking it's probably due to the fact it's made for a HHD, not a SSD.

I just found another program like that here :) called SSD-led, and it works :)

Well, I have a problem now, maybe you know how I can fix this. I uninstalled that Explorer Patch today, and now my file manager no longer is able to open any folders, no longer able to read my external drive. when I open it and click on a folder the mouse just has the blue animated circle running, when I try to do anything it says not responding and to close it. I can not open any files.
