    Microsoft has done a great job with Windows 8 but missed two things: Ability to pin desktop apps as Modern UI tiles and a time displaying tile or widget in the Start screen.

    I fixed the trouble of tiles for desktop apps by using Pin Steam. Rest of my desktop app tiles (Photoshop, Illustrator, Windows Media Center, Mozilla Firefox) look fine, but the game tiles were ugly! Pin Steam fixed it, though. :cool:

    Now, coming back to the main topic, Microsoft forgot adding a clock widget onto the Start screen. Though we could see the time by opening the Charms bar, I'd love to see time on the Start screen without touching my computer. I found a nifty-little Windows 8 app on the Store called the "Clock Tile". You can check it out below. Tell me how you like it! :D

    Microsoft forgot more than just a clock tile for the start screen. Did anyone else besides me happen to notice that the start button is missing? :p

    @Moderator LOL There are plenty of them on the forums all over the internet :p
    But honestly, I think we need a live clock and a resource monitor. Hate going to task manager to look at my resource consumptions. The whole point of live tiles is to replace widgets IMO. So I think Microsoft should provide with a few basic ones like resource monitors, sticky notes, clock, calculator, etc.

    I don't know about a sticky notes and a clock app, but Windows 8.1 does have a new calculator app.

    Meh, with the time showing up in the task bar, I see no use for a clock tile.
