Several Reddit users, missing a specific Windows 7 function, are asking Microsoft to implement it again in Windows 11: the Daylight Savings Time notification displayed when hovering the mouse pointer over the clock on the main screen.

The request, which came via Reddit’s “r/Windows” subforum, was originally posted last Saturday (30), but since then, it has garnered hundreds of likes and several comments – most of them in a favorable tone to the measure.

The DST warning was originally created in Windows 7, but was discontinued in later versions of the operating system. It didn’t consist of anything very major: essentially, when you hovered over the clock on the system taskbar (or clicked in the same place to open the Calendar), you received an alert that you were in the corresponding period of the year.

Daylight Saving Time, as you already know, essentially consists of moving the clocks forward by one hour. In Brazil, it was first instituted in 1931, with the aim of encouraging the population to “stretch the afternoon” and, with daylight now lasting until 7pm, on average, fewer electrical devices would be turned on, consequently alleviating demand. of public energy supply.

It was in 2019 that then-president Jair Bolsonaro signed a decree that revoked daylight saving time completely, but several commercial associations, in various industries, are calling for its return. The current government, however, has not yet decided whether to do this.

Microsoft has not yet commented on whether it will accept the “redditors’ request”, but the company is very connected to its community and usually offers feedback on requests – yes or no – quickly, so it may have some comment to offer in a few days.
