Hi there,

i tried setting the short date under customize format "Date" tabs to dd, i only got time when the taskbar is at single line, and time, day of week , day when the taskbar is dragged to 2 lines.
How do i show everything in a single line?

If you want to show both time & date on the Task Bar, you have to either use large icons for the Task Bar or you have to drag the height of the Task Bar until it shows what you want.

This tutorial shows you how to set the various time & date formats.
