Timekeeper is a deskband (like the taskbar) that displays the current date and time in whatever format you specify. If you click on it with your mouse, it will display a calendar that you can resize to display as many months as you want.

Get Timekeeper Free (32- and 64-bit)

(Note: When you install Timekeeper on Windows 7 64-bit, Windows will display a compatibility warning. The correct 64-bit Timekeeper is still installed, so it’s safe to ignore this warning.)

Single line Double line

I was inspired to write Timekeeper because I used to use TClockEx, and while it’s an interesting (but fragile) solution, it’s very old and hasn’t been updated since the year 2000. Windows 98 introduced the concept of deskbands, small bars that can be hidden, displayed, resized, floated, and moved. I wrote Timekeeper to take advantage of these modern features.

You can drag Timekeeper wherever you want it—even vertically—just like your other deskbands. You can also drag Timekeeper off the taskbar and let it “float” on your Windows Vista or XP desktop. (Windows 7 removed support for this feature.)

Floating deskband

German Timekeeper has been translated into German.



When you click on Timekeeper with your mouse, it displays a calendar.


To access Timekeeper’s menu, right-click on Timekeeper. The menu allows you to perform the following functions:

  • Obtain information about 12noon Products.
  • Display this Help document.
  • Display the About window.
  • Configure the date/time display.
  • Adjust the system date/time.
  • Specify whether the calendar should highlight today’s date.
  • Specify whether the calendar should display week numbers.
  • Specify whether the calendar should remember its position.
  • Specify whether the calendar should remember its size.
  • Specify the calendar’s font.


Timekeeper runs on Microsoft® Windows® 8.1, 8, 7, and Vista. (It should run on XP Home and Professional, 2000, Me and 98, but I can no longer test those environments.) The Timekeeper installer contains both 32-bit annd 64-bit versions.
