Alternative ways to check the time on the Mac

This is a really nerdy post, but I wanted to share.

I’m exploring different ways of displaying the time in my menubar, which could be interesting to others.

And before you comment: I don’t want to install Bartender.


Since you already have Keyboard Maestro and BTT you could do what I do: tap a corner on the trackpad to “display text big” and format the time any way you like. This takes NO space in the menu or notification center.

Bonus: I can do it during a video meeting and no one knows I’m checking the time.

Hmm, intersting idea.
