Use a custom user texture for the desktop CLOCK!
It is easy to use custom textures for the desktop CLOCK from version 7.01 on all MS Windows 11, 10, ... Desktop and Server OS!
Anyone who has good knowledge of graphics, PNG, alpha transparency, ... can design their own desktop clock in no time at all without much effort, in general everyone should be a little familiar with digital graphics, this can only be an advantage!
1.) Here is a simple children's watch that I put together in 10 minutes!
With the search term: Transparent PNG MICKEY MOUSE I quickly found the images on the Internet and edited them with the ancient Ulead Photoimpact 8.0, but it also works with any other program that can handle transparency or alpha transparency!
You can integrate shadow effects into the pictures yourself (if you can), but you don’t have to, because the desktop Aero clock ► TheAeroClock automatically offers the shadow effect for the user-defined pictures, which makes the clock appear better and more professional.

2.) The rules for custom images!
1. Open the folder of the Ini file
2. Create the folder img
3. You can then use this for your own texture of the desktop clock
(... see Image-2 Point 1 to 6)
clock _*_ bg.png is the basic image for your own CLOCK
Here is the layer sequence
clock _*_ bg.png < Background
clock _*_ cf.png < Clock Face
clock _*_ hour.png < Clock hand
clock _ *_ min.png < Minute hand
clock _*_ sec. png < Second hand
It works also with only two images:
clock _*_ bg.png < Background
clock _*_ min.png < Minute hand
In this case, the clock hand and the second hand are generated from the minute hand!
But it works also with one image:
or only clock _*_ bg.png < Background
Then the alternative second hand is used ;-)

3.) What should I consider about ...... and so ...?
As a rule, you have no problems with copyrights when creating personal watches for your own use, i.e. private use. I have omitted the colored MICKEY MOUSE from the example MICKEY MOUSE clock. But everyone can integrate that themselves, because with the right search term you can find everything ;-)
4.) ... Tips for searching images for the desktop CLOCK!
The term PNG and transparent is always an advantage, regardless of whether it is Google Images Search or Bing!
► Transparent PNG MICKEY MOUSE
► Transparent Harry Potter brush
► Transparent broom PNG
Tip: ►► if you have problems with transparency in some images!
5.) ... Download the sample pictures for the desktop clocks!
I will add more pictures and textures at times, now only as a template
