  2. *** Nokia 6230i "Clock font size"

    I've never tried changing the font size, but what I did I changed the idle font colour to white. Here's how:

    Settings

    Display

    Idle state font

    This bring up a palet of colours, just pick white or whatever colour you want, and I can now read the clock and date much better.

    Also, what not try this, select

    Colour Schemes

    this changes the background colours, so if your susceptible to certain colours, this may help too.

    When upgrading to Windows 10 the taskbar text color is black (not white)

    I have all the colour options I want but I just want to change the clock colour from black to white. How do I change only the clock colour?

    I've been using T-Clock for a few years now. No longer being actively developed unfortunately but the available 2010 version does work with Windows 10. Customisable text as regards the font chosen, bold and colours. Different time formats can be chosen, short or long day (Thurs or Thursday), 24 or 12 hour clock:

    T-Clock 2010 (download) - DonationCoder.com

    Edit: I notice on the page linked to that someone other then the original developer has taken on the project and there is a later version available if required.

    Change Date and Clock Colour

    Since you went with this one, just a couple of things that might be useful to know:

    Under 'T-Clock Properties > Time format (tab)' the day and date display can be changed under 'Advanced Clock Configuration Options'.

    To make it look the same as displayed in the screenshot, tick the 'Custom Format' box and change the default setting to: dddd, d-m-yy | h:nn:tt. Also change to clock to a 12 hour display. Click 'Apply'.

    Under the 'Clock Text' tab, the vertical position of the display can be raised or lowered a bit using 'Clock Size and Text Position'. It might be necessary to raise the vertical position a bit if the tail of the 'y' in day is getting cut off. The vertical position on my display is '2'.

    Just Small bits of information but useful maybe.
