Windows 7: Date/Time

Date/Time

Hi. I'm trying to get my taskbar to show my full date and time, in my taskbar. Who can give me instructions on what to do??

I want my taskbar to display just "Sun, Oct 27, 2013".

Not " 'Sunday' Sun, Oct 27, 2013"

I think I got the settings correct, NO??

I want it to say "the full date/time" when I hoover my mouse pointer over it. Not like now, I have full name of the week, and underneath is a line that I want there, but just by itself.

Thank you folks

Try adding one more "y" to what you have for the short date format:

ddd, MMM dd, yyyy

I'm not sure that I understand the other part of your request.

I use T-Clock 2010 so that I can see the seconds on the clock and have a calendar handy.

Put this in the Short Date Field: ddd,MMM,dd,yyyy
It should then display Sun.Oct27,2013.
Using 4 "d's" or "M's" will display the entire word.

This will change the date format in all programs which display one, such as Word.

Of course I have the task bar on the bottom, if I put it on the left it only shows the time.
