Hello Supdoc,

You could use the tutorial below to set the time format to HH:mm for 24 hour time.

You could use the tutorial below to set the date format to dd/MM/yyyy.

To be able to have the full date and time to display on the taskbar, you may also need to have the taskbar set to have large icons
I prefer to use small icons, somehow I managed to use display the time+date(after I switched between themes), So I know it's possible.

After i switched to other theme, it's displaying now only the time.

It is not possible on my computer unless I untick "use small icons" in Task bar properties section. I prefer the small icons as the task bar is not quite so wide, but it only shows the time.
