taskbar week day

Hi, I'm trying to get the name of the weekday in the date/time option on the task bar to show, I have read all the customizations on your site(that's how I found you), but try as I might , I haven't been able to get the day of the week and date to continually show in the task bar. It will show the format I selected, IF I hover my mouse curser over it. I have tried all the combinations and how to's on the internet, and nothing has worked. Is there a setting I'm not seeing that has to be enabled or disabled? Please help.I have a gateway computer 62 bit and running windows 7

Hello,

Just to be sure and not to belittle you in case you did, but you went into the date/time settings within the options and altered the dd/mm/yy settings correct?

Try resetting the to the default settings via the button in the corner, then try manually adding the letters in the short date. For instance this is what I had before and after

I just tried what you showed and when I hit Apply, it just reverts to show just the time. I'm beginning to suspect that there is just no way to make the day of the week to show

Right click on taskbar and click properties and see if "use small icons" is ticked. if it is, you'll have to unlock the taskbar and manually expand it to show the date.

Also, in the taskbar properties, double check that the clock and date are enabled by clicking on the "customize" tab, then the "turn system icons of/off"
