Hi everyone,

Since I've installed Lite on a 15" MacBook Pro, I've decided to hide the Menu bar to maximize window display. Thing is, when i do that, I can't see the clock anymore, unless I trigger the Whisker Menu with the Command key.

I believe there's a way to add the clock, without or without date, in the top bar / application bar, but i can't find where in the Settings.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

PS: I thought I could easily add a screenshot to illustrate what I mean by top bar, but you can't easily do that, and I'm pressed for time.

Hi,

I'm going to try this vagrant clock thing...  ;D

It's better than the other suggestion you made, I think (add a new item to the Menu bar), because I like the bar hidden. Thanks for the tip, I'll let you know how it went.
