Padbury Clock

A basic digital clock screensaver from Australian American designer Robert Padbury that displays the current time in an elegant and legible font, in either a 12 or a 24 hour format. It includes a "Light" (default) and a "Dark" theme, as well as a Night Time Mode that displays the time in red from 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM. Time separators can be enabled, and if you have multiple monitors you can opt to display the screensaver on your main display only. The Windows implementation from IcoFX Software has the same features as the Mac original.

Avast Antivirus sometimes diagnoses it as mal-ware when the screensaver works.

Doesn't work for the 2021 MacBook Pro.

by Jaelyn on December 25, 2021

it is a very simple and beautiful screensaver, while i do hope it can be provided with a setting that can shadow the changing of second,which only shows the hour and minute. with that, the screensaver can provide a better using experience for people that suffer from ADHD.

Very nice-looking, smooth screen saver. Easy to install. Thank you!

by Nicholas on March 19, 2021

This saver works good on my legacy pc's I gave it 4 stars because no am or pm options, none that I can find in options. not a big deal as I really like the simplicity of a large basic easy to see clock. guess i should have gave it 5 stars.

Discontinued flash stops other screensavers from working on windows?
OK so, I installed an older active X version of flash. such as- Flash Player for Internet Explorer - ActiveX. I uninstall all prior flash versions before installing the IE active X version. this worked on my legacy systems winXP, vista, win7. (32 bit) versions. I have about 50-100 various savers the flash base savers all started working again- to no surprise.

Can't find Options?
Alternatively, Dark theme Options can be found by right click on the "padbury.scr" file and selecting configuration. The" padbury.scr" file located C:\Windows. at least on my windows 32 bit x86 systems. would think same is true for newer 32 bit OS versions but don't know for a fact "untested". as for 64 bit windows version, don't know never looked.

I frequently use legacy 32 bit OS because have "lots" of vintage software that works best within the legacy hardware perimeters :)

Great nonflash screen saver.

by thefishman1987 on January 15, 2021

Because Adobe Flash is no longer a thing, this is the only screensaver that works.

by Asha on January 13, 2021

Minimalist, but the only one that finally works!!

by JN on November 23, 2019

Love it. It helps me with knowing the time in the night.

by Kekschen on June 3, 2019

Please make that Padbery Clock Works under Windows XP. Thank You !!!

by Ralf Hamerla on April 22, 2019

Very minimal and clean

by Matthew on March 25, 2019

hey adam i think you had the little clock in the apple preferences itself turned on, bc there is no second clock in this screensaver. in the apple preferences in screensavers it says 'show with clock' and i think you had that turned on

by hey adam on January 24, 2018

Great ScreenSaver! Very Clean, Awesome for work laptops or desk laptops.
Although, they don't tell you that there is a smaller clock right below it. For Example, 02 13 12
2:13 pm

by Adam on October 31, 2016

It is absolutely amazing
