    What clock are you using?
    It's a UCCW skin called Elegante.

    Since I'm a beginner on customizing home screens, I have a question. I have figured out how to bring in a widget and have an assigned function, such as with Zooper. If I want to use an icon for something and have it open a folder instead of just one certain app, how can I do that? Like if I made my own icons for example, and I want one called games to open all of them...how do I do something like that instead of only seeing choices of opening one app per button?

    Are you using a launcher?

    This is with nova launcher prime.

    1. Select the folder you want to change the icon for. In this case I'll be changing the camera folder icon.


    2. Long press the folder and you will be given a list of options


    3. Select edit and these options will come up and you want to change the icon for the folder, select the picture of the folder.


    4. You will then be taken to your installed themes. You can select an icon from your themes or swipe all the way to the left to get to your gallery and use your own icons.



    5. Select your icon. I've selected this icon for my camera folder. And as you can see I've given my camera folder a name.


    6. Select the checkmark in the top left corner of the Window when you are finished editing this folder icon. That's it. You've now customized the look of your folder from a preview layout to a single icon. In the second picture you can see that when the icon is selected it opens your folder. Done.

    Thanks SO much! It works! I'm pretty excited as I have been trying to figure this out for a long time. The folders really threw me. I didn't realize I could do that.

    Those are the Nokia belle theme. Some are the elegant theme. The folder icons are now the blue neon theme but the apps themselves are Nokia belle.

    I've changed it up a bit. Ok the clock and weather are the hd widgets. The widgets for wifi, brightness and battery are hd widgets and the one with the cell signal is called Networkinfo. The folder icons are the neon blue theme. In the second photo you will see that when I select a folder icon that my actual apps are the Nokia belle theme (that's my spen folder that's open). In the third photo that's what one of my app drawer pages look like which I get to by selecting the superman icon on the home screens. I've had all kinds of different layouts ranging from really complicated to just a few icons and I find this simple layout to be the easiest to use for me. Don't get me wrong though it may not look that complicated but it takes some work to get here.

    I am figuring a few things out but have a lot to learn. I'm happy with this for now. I am trying to figure out how to change my clock so it isn't in military time, if possible. Other than that, functioning well.

    Looks nice!

    You can change the format of the clock skin.

    Pick Elegante clock skin go to the UCCW editor screen and scroll down until you see this

    Got it! Thanks for the help, Josphe72. I was having trouble finding the editor for UCCW. Now it makes a lot more sense.

    Any idea how to change the time to 12 hour in the Elegante Skin with the date included from the XDA forum?It doesn't have the same options in the controls (xda-developers - View Single Post - [UCCW] My skinz)

    I'm sure editing is blocked on that skin.
    I once made my own UCCW widgets and overlapped them (using Apex Pro launcher) onto Elegante skin. Here is my take on it.

    The above was from an old post...here starts the new info and question!!! DISREGARD question on military time...got that covered.

    I have switched to a different phone now and am wanting to set it up with that calendar app with transparent background. I can't for the life of me figure out what I used for that, though. How can I look at the old one and tell what widget, etc., I used to make that. I was so happy with it that I haven't messed with it in the meantime and now I've forgotten.
