Re: Clock Addon doesn't save settings, nor does f12 work for time and date
The add-on has nothing to do with the computer keeping time. it affects how NVDA can be made to announce the time.

If your computer is an older one, it may actually have a battery that keeps clock functions running when the computer is turned off. I believe they were rechargeable, but rechargeable batteries will not recharge indefinitely.
