WorldClock.Net Description
WorldClock.Net is a completely new implementation of WorldClock based on the .Net platform. Although similar in nature to the original WorldClock (now dubbed WorldClock "Classic"), it takes a very different user interface approach; instead of the orignal small map display as its main presentation, WorldClock.Net starts with a full-screen map of the world as you can see below: has most of the functionality of the original WorldClock with the exception of the desktop wallpaper features. The following list summarizes the important differences between the two applications:


  • WorldClock.Net presents a new user interface experience and runs on the .Net platform
  • New event/schedule/agenda panel tied to your Google or Office 365 calendar
  • Display 10-day forecast by double-clicking on the weather panel
  • Display detailed location information by double-clicking on location's time panel
  • Time panel positions can be relocated with a simple mouse click-and-drag operation
  • Alarms are active and trigger even if WorldClock.Net is not running
  • Full screen display support (Ctrl-F to toggle)
  • Startup option: Start program in normal, maximized, or full-screen mode
  • Hovering mouse over holiday date in calendar panel will display holiday information
  • All wallpaper features
  • Four and six month calendar displays
  • Calendar View with marked days/reminders
  • Automatic TimeSync
  • Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, or 11.
    Please note that WorldClock.Net is not compatible with Windows XP or earlier.
  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5. Note that if you are using Windows version 8 or higher, .Net 4.5 is already installed on your system. If you're using Windows Vista or Windows 7, you can download the .Net 4.5 Framework installer from the link below:
Note that WorldClock.Net is not intended as a replacement for WorldClock "Classic" but as an alternative user interface variant for those who do not need the wallpaper functionality of the original.

 WorldClock.Net Preferences
Like WorldClock before it, WorldClock.Net is highly customizable.

As you can see above, with the exception of the desktop wallpaper features, most of the preferences are identical to the original WorldClock Preferences. The only difference is a new tab named Schedule.

On this tab you can configure a link between WorldClock.Net and your calendar. WorldClock.Net supports linking to either a Google calendar or an Office 365 calendar. Note that local Outlook calendars are not supported, only Office 365 cloud-based calendars.

Once your link is established (this authenticates and gives permission to WorldClock.Net to access your calendar information) you can view your upcoming schedule in an information panel on the main display (see the bottom-left corner of the main screenshot above).
