Windows 7: Problem with size of taskbar clock

Problem with size of taskbar clock

I recently installed a custom theme on my windows and suddenly the free space on the clock increased allot and it is a bit obnoxious

It isnt from the theme it's self because I have installed it before and I never had this happen.
Is there a way to make it smaller again or decrease the free space?

Hi DeZolance, welcome to the Forum.

It looks like you have the time set for a 24 hour clock in short time mode. The space is set to allow for showing time in hours, minutes & seconds in AM & PM formats in long time mode if desired, so I don't think you can reduce the space that is allowed for the clock.

Have you got the Task Bar set for Use small icons. To do that right click on the Task Bar & select Properties & tick Use small icons.
