The users of Windows 8.1 are looking here and there to get clock on their Start Screen. You can get a Live tile of clock from Microsoft Windows online store that can be pinned to the Start Screen, but the problem with this process is that the live tile will be active when you open Start Screen and when you leave the screen, it will again be inactive.
